Our 29th annual regatta is over.  Our winds were co-operative and blew for two days although starting later on Sunday morning.  The San Juan 21 North Americans were held jointly with the Glenmore Sailing Club hosting this event at our sailing facility from Thursday to Sunday.  There were 31 San Juan 21's registered and 39 registered for the Prairie Wind for a total of 70 sailboats.  Some of the San Juan competitors travelled a long ways to our lake coming from Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, California, Montana, British Columbia, Alberta etc.  The Prairie Wind Regatta had fleets of Fireballs, Lasers, Optimist Dinghies, Seaspray Catamarans and a number of other sailboat types.  A lot of our club members competed as well as volunteered their time to help host the event.  We owe a lot to the volunteers and value their contributions.
