Harborfest Regatta Challenge Helps Kick-off Event

The Harborfest Regetta Challenge went down Thursday to help kick-off the 40th anniversary of the event. Boats raced each other to Town Point Park in Norfolk starting at Craney Island in Porstmouth.

The race was open to sailboats over 20 feet, all handicap classes, regular spinnaker and non-spinnaker classes as well as cruising classes. The race was also sanctioned by the US Sailing Association and was a throwback to the former Harborfest sail boat races that ran in the 70’s and 80′.
