Sebago Canoe Club Hosts Annual Laser Regatta

The skippers’ meeting. The skippers’ meeting. Dinghy sailing is alive and well at Sebago Canoe Club, which hosted its Second Annual District 8 Laser Regatta this past weekend. Sailors of laser boats came from as far away as Saratoga and Sayville to enter the race across Jamaica Bay.

Sebago’s sailing committee chair, Jim Luton, served as primary race officer. Luton said the consistent southeast breeze made for good sailing conditions on Saturday.

After the race, participants enjoyed a hearty picnic dinner, courtesy of the club. The community is invited to come out and try sailing at the club’s annual open house on Saturday, May 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. See www.sebagocanoeclub.org for directions, or call 718-241-3683.
