2012 FWSA Rainbow Regatta, April 16th (click on photo for larger image and back button to return)

      It was a beautiful day in Sarasota, Florida for the 2012 FWSA Rainbow Regatta.  This year we Bitter Ends co-hosted with the Sarasota Sailing Squadron's Luffing Lassies and the Keel Magnolias of Sarasota Yacht Club.  Our Bitter Ends responsibilities included T-shirt design and orders, registration and we made Commemorative Bookmarks as favors as well as doing the artwork for the donated Tervis Tumblers.  We started before sunrise to rig our boats.  Attended the Competitor's Meeting and set off on the water around 9 AM.  Three races and five hours later in the 3 boat classes (PRAMs, IODs and SUNFISH) we had some winners for the first time in many years, see below.  It was a wonderful Race Day and all had a great time.  The hard work and thank yous are numerous.  Bitter Ends as a Club and Team working together.  Be Proud!
