The date is September 15-16th 2012, a two-day event. I attended last year, and it was a great time with music, and since it was early in the fall, still great weather. I always think it's a shame that we don't get better student attendance at Hampton Sailing events, so I wanted to share this one. Here is a description of last year's event!
Surprisingly, it will be our third regatta of the season, so we get going pretty early. Check out the sailing team's schedule, to see if they have any events close to your home town, and invite your family and friends to come watch and support. The Pirates have regattas up and down the mid-Atlantic, in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
P.S. For all of you who didn't know, Edward Teach is the real name of Blackbeard the Pirate. So apparently the regatta is in his honor. You know, the guy who used to light his beard on fire to intimidate his enemies?
