Peter and Alex Rahn left early this morning, boat in tow, for that annual ritual of the winter regatta. It was -14c when this was taken. Their racing is expected to take place in about +20c. The cyclical migration is for the Annual Midwinter International Wayfarer Championship Regatta. They will be racing at the Lake Eustis Sailing Club which is a pretty busy club with a lot of dinghy fleets and regattas. It is situated a little north of Orlando, Florida. The Rahn family race their Shark here in the summer months, and are one of the winning teams the rest of us judge are progress by. Likewise, they are podium people in the Wayfarer class too.
Meanwhile, it is expected to reach a nice and mild -6c locally today with a nice light wind and snowfall. It's a good day to check the boat tarp!
Keep us posted guys!
