Women’s Circuit Ends This Sunday

Island YC’s Jack & Jill + 1 race will be held this Sunday afternoon on the Estuary. The race is the final event in the Latitude 38 Women’s Circuit so if you want a crack at the tiara, get out there for a great day of sailing. And don’t forget the post-race Chili Cook-off — you can bring your own or just enjoy everyone else’s cooking. Sign-ups will be taken until the skipper’s meeting Sunday morning. Head on over to their website for details.
