Every Memorial Day weekend the Austin Yacht Club holds the 2 day Turnback Canyon Regatta – sailing about 25 miles upriver on Saturday to the K-bar Ranch and returning to AYC on Sunday.
We sailed up one year as a cruiser, but the last 2 years or so there has been little wind, and some rain, so we have decided to stay close to home and watch from our anchorage in one of the Arkansas Bend coves.
This year, however, the wind was strong – gusting in the high 20’s.
Today we hung out at the opening of Hurst Harbor to watch the boats sail by. This is a shot of Kurt and Wally on Dancer as they zipped by. I believe they took first in their class yesterday. I think they were the first Catalina 30 that went by today, as well. Nice job guys!
