The VA Governor’s Cup Regatta at Ware River Yacht Club is one of my favorite regattas of the year. I have been heading down there since 2013 and really enjoy camping at the club and hanging out with friends at the club. Despite worries about COVID-19 this year, Celeste and I decided to head down there after getting negative COVID test results and after a summer of cancelled events we were excited for the chance to attend a regatta. While attendance this year was much lower than before and almost no one camped, it was still a fun event. With the addition of the Ware River Fleet members, the Albacores were the largest fleet at 10 boats and won the Governor’s Cup.
The breeze was nice on both days and was even verging in what I would call high wind. We got off a lot of races and most boats were finishing all over the place.
All in all it was a good time as always at Ware River. And while most people left the club by sunset, it did not disappoint. There was a rain storm that passed just south of the river which gave some beautiful views!
