Sunday racing conditions were ideal at Rockville, with overcast skies from inland thunderstorms, and plenty of wind - which was in sharp contrast to the lack of wind suffered on Saturday. However, the term 'doldrums' likely did not apply on Saturday as witnesses indicated a huge spectator fleet filled with revelry (and maybe some hellraising too) had gathered to support the sailing regatta at the Sea Island Yacht Club. Sunday's sailing races were 'sprightly' and entertaining for those that were able to make it back onto the water to view them. Thanks to committee boat Sonny Boy for agreeing to provide transportation in order to share this look at the Rockville races.
