West Sound on Orcas Island was a terrific venue with friendly if shifty breezes and the Orcas Island Yacht Club put on a fantastic Regatta. Congratulations to Ken Machtley and the organizing crew for raising the bar on hosting the North Americans in the Pacific Northwest. Can't beat good food, good music, good weather, and catch up with old friends, to make a truly enjoyable event. West Sound is a great venue and certainly on the map for more 242ers from now on!
It was a test for everyone - a fun test!
