The Caloosahatchee Marching and Chowder Society sponsored its 47th annual Summerset Regatta on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6-7 in the Gulf of Mexico off of Fort Myers Beach.
The weather was perfect for a regatta with easterly breezes off the beach and calm seas. Unfortunately, light winds in the afternoon limited the number of races, but two races were held over the two-day period.
Over 150 sailors from Charlotte Harbor to Naples competed in seven classes on 32 boats, making it one of the biggest regattas in the Fort Myers Area.
Proceeds from this regatta will be used to benefit youth sailing.
The racing program is open to members and non-members as well.
