Vancouver certainly delivered for VRC’s Single Handed Anything Goes regatta, commonly known as “SHAG” this past Sunday. And so did the skippers! Twenty-one “armies of one” made it to the race area in what started off as a challenging day for a regatta: the day was nice but there was absolutely no wind.
