Regatta Update from Patricia Aspinwall

Thank you to everyone who came out to our fun filled weekend of Regatta events this past weekend.

The weekend started off with a great BBQ and Dance in the Park.Lots of food, good music, and great company.

Sunday had terrific weather for the Water Races at the Public Beach. The lake was perfectly calm and we had some great swimming and canoe races.

Monday morning started off great with our Running Races at Swannanoa. Unforunately (or forunately for the 25+ age group who were about to run), the weather gods thought we were having too much fun this weekend and gave us a good down pour to put a stop to it. We had hopes that the rain would let up, but after waiting it out for 10 minutes, there was no signs of that! After lots of debate and looking at the jam packed calendar for August, it has been decided not to find a rain date for the Running Races.

Thank you for all who came out. It was another wonderful Regatta Weekend in Sturgeon Point!


There are plenty of events taking place this weekend.

Here is a quick overview:
