The Geechee Sailing Club hosts the annual St. Patrick’s Regatta, now in our 43rd year! Over the weekend of March 19-20, 2022, sailors took to the water to test their racing prowess. Saturday was extreme conditions with the wind fighting against the current. We had one long fleet race for the five classes: Spinnaker, Non-Spinnaker, Cruising, J/24 and Rhodes 19. The Cruising and Rhodes 19 classes started together first, then the other three classes started. Sunday was still very windy but the skies were clear blue for the Pursuit Race. Staggered starts were calculated with the goal of boats approaching the finish line in close proximity. It was very exciting as each group approached the finish line into the wind and current!
