There was a good variety of boats, ranging from small racing boats such as Vipers up to a 60-ft custom ketch (S/V Libra).
With these conditions, the small fast boats were the optimum boat for the race.
Here are a few more photos of the event:

The boat always goes a half knot faster when you do your Titanic pose! - everyone knows that.
This great event was hosted by Point Yacht Club (Pt.YC), and supported by Pensacola Yacht Club (PYC). Social events were held at Pt.YC. The number of participants and spectators was boosted by PYC members attending a weekend raft-up that coincided with the event. We hosted that, including a Friday night party with a food theme of "English Pies".
Saturday night was a fish fry hosted by Pt.YC. the club served 195 meals and there was dancing to a live duo on the club deck.
Sunday morning was again hosted by PYC and included a bring-a-dish brunch, with Mimosas and Bloody Marys provided by PYC, again on the deck of Pt.YC's club. Over 100 participants, and observers attended the brunch, making this a successful and fun weekend of events. Several boats that left the regatta on Sunday headed for Ft. Mcree to spend the night at anchor before returning to Pensacola and Navarre.
