The 45th Annual George Washington's Birthday Regatta was a big success! Fifty-nine boats in all showed up to race, including San Juan 21s, Wayfarers, Lasers, Club 420s, and Optis. The Largest class by far, was the Flying Scots, sailing in #5 of the Florida District Point Series regattas. Twenty-five Scots on the starting line on Saturday! The wind gods were kind, too, with Saturday's three races sailed in winds between 9 and 12 mph. The first race on Sunday had winds in the mid to upper teens, prompting some Scots to stay in. That and mechanical issues reduced the number of Scots on the water Sunday to seventeen. By the second and last race the wind had moderated to a "paltry" 9 or 10 mph. Though a bit cool, the weather was beautiful on both days, making for some great sailing!

After racing on Saturday, the fleets were treated to an awesome barbeque dinner, catered by the Black Bear Smokehouse in Mt. Dora, washed down with adult beverages sponsored by Merrill's Sidewalk Bistro, in downtown Mt. Dora, and ServPro of Lake County. All this to the accompaniment of a steel drum band. To top off the day, Ray Laguna sponsored a Sunset Celebration with piña coladas. A special thanks to Keven Briggs and Sonic Restaurants for their continuing support and sponsorship of LESC regattas. Also, thanks to the approximately twenty-five volunteers it takes to run a show like this! Everyone did a great job!
