Classic Boat Rally – Sailing April 2019

True Love in the Beaufort River

The 13th annual Classic Boat Rally was held last week. This is a sailing race from Savannah to Beaufort in the Inland Waterway for classic (traditional) sailboats. The first day the fleet raced from Savannah Yacht Club to South Carolina Yacht Club on Hilton Head. The second day took the boats from Hilton Head to the Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club. The sailing conditions were excellent both days with the trip to Beaufort having winds over 20 knots at times.

Roy Crocker in TRUE LOVE took 1st, Jim Flannagan (with crew Chuck Raynor) sailing SHOREBIRD was 2nd, and Marvin Day’s OXYGEN came in 3rd. All three were sailing Marshall Catboats.

With the rebuilding of Dataw Marina we are looking the getting the sailing/racing program at Dataw going again.
