Southeastern Virginia Hydrofoil Regatta! Any interest?

Postby Mossy 757 » Mon Nov 27, 2017 4:17 pm

Kiteforum family,
I'm trying to get a bead on the interest level for a local area regatta in Southeastern Virginia. I put together a quick Facebook Poll to gauge interest and help understand what participants might want out of an event in this area.

If you're interested in seeing another seasonal event get established on the east coast of the US, please take a moment to follow this link to complete the survey:

Thanks!

Awesome idea, the regattas I've been to have mostly been Saturday/Sunday course racing with a distance/pursuit race on the Friday before hand for those that can spare the extra weekday to race.

I've also been thinking about doing an "around the lights" type race between Middle Ground Lighthouse and Thimble Shoals Light. They're 9.5 miles apart so a round trip with a finish line would be a nice 20 to 25 mile leg-burner. The biggest problem with that is you really need a steady breeze to sail around that part of Norfolk Harbor, if the wind drops out you're in a really busy shipping channel and the chase boats' heads would explode.
