Fri Sep-23, 2023: CHLOD Regatta Weather Update

420s Will Sail on Sunday

Each of the three weather forecasting models that we use here on Hatteras line up and predict the wind to be decreasing for sailing on Sunday.

Phillips family is planning to head to the sailing center Saturday afternoon to begin clean up and prep for regatta sailing on Sunday. If you’d like to help please reach out to us directly. The updated schedule is below. Please be ready and prepped for early morning skippers meeting so we can get in as much sailing as possible.
