Race Around Lido

This past Monday we had our annual timed race around Lido Beach on Memorial Day. The goal of this for-fun race is to predict your time for a complete sail around the island and then aim to finish in exactly that time without the help of watches or other digital devices. We headed out to our site on the north end of the island for some games and refreshments and then when the horn sounded we hurried out to our boats and began racing! This event is a tradition for Sarasota sailors and a great way to spend the weekend. Of course the multihulls always finish first!
