Photo Gallery: 52nd Annual Sailboat Regatta in Greenwich

The sun came out just in time on Sunday, October 4th for the 1pm start to the Old Greenwich Riverside Community Center’s (OGRCC) 52nd Annual Sailboat Regatta, and the early autumn winds whipping through Greenwich set all participants up for sailing success.

The Regatta is a cherished local event, long known to bring generations together (in the process of building the boats) and the community together when the time arrives to set sail.

Entrants at the Regatta participated in any one of nine categories, including children 9 and under, monohulls up to and over 17 inches, homemade boats, radio controlled boats, and more.

Trophies were awarded to the lucky winners (see list below image gallery).
