2016 Women's Regatta Results
Women's Regatta 2016 Photo Album 2016


Another great Women's Regatta.  Links to the photos and results below.


The 2014 Women's Regatta was held on Sunday, June 1st. It included racers or cruisers
with a wide range of experience.  Check out the photo album of the event.


The 2013 Regatta featured light and variable conditions but three races were sailed.  At the end of the day Emily Manders on Jubilee and Nancy Oliver on Spirit won the day in Spinnaker and Non-spinnaker classes respectively.   


The 2012 Regatta was a three race affair - Emily Manders skippered Jubilee to a 1st Place finish in the Spinnaker Class and  Nancy Oliver guided Spirit to a 1st in Non-Spinnaker.  HHSA was very proud to have hosted Spinnster, a very competitive boat from SMSA (Solomon's Island).


The 2011 Race was combined with the annual Adopt-a-Cruiser race.  Six all-female boats had their own class and out-numbered the Cruiser/Racers.


2010 was the revival of the HHSA Women's Race which was last held in the mid 1990's.  Three courageous women competed and had such a good time that commitments were made to make this an annual event.
