A total of 17 T-Birds showed up for a really fun weekend of Thunderbird style one-design racing at Fleet 33’s Northwest Regional Regatta. What they got was a big does of fun and a little of everything else: 10 races, aggressive starts, general recalls, sun, rain, fog, big wind, light breezes, a river of current, busy mark roundings, a couple of noisy discussions on what boat was allowed in there, highs, lows, a terrific dinner, a beer or three. Everything you could hope for. A special thanks to all the boats that traveled from more distant points to participate, and Fleet 33 for putting on such a fun event. More info and pics to follow.
