Rat Island Regatta 2015

Updated: Sep 21, 2023

Another one for the scrapbook! Thanks to Steve Chapin and Sally Giesler, the Rat Island Regatta was – to quote Linda Deal – “A lovely day and a great event”

And thanks to Steve Chapin, Ron Wheeler,  Paul Rollinger Terrie Ragins and yours truly, we can let the pictures do the talking. (click on the red names for more photos from each)

Steve writes: Unlike the usual postings on the SR Photography page, Paul and Michael worked it out so these should be downloadable for personal use!

Congratulations everyone! And thank you to all who participated on the water and on the beach and in the boathouse. This takes an enormous amount of effort, time and teamwork.
