The Nan Norris memorial Regatta takes place every year during hurricane season, the last weekend in September. Appropriate, since its namesake was a diehard proponent of sailing in ALL CONDITIONS. BIG wind, small wind, and NO wind, without limits.
"If you are afraid of breakage", she would say, "you are in the wrong spot."
There is no better way to end a sailing season. PEOPLE PLUS WIND PLUS CARNAGE EQUALS FUN!!
