Pensacola Yacht Club to host boat race
PENSACOLA -- Over a hundred young sailors are in Pensacola for a big regatta this weekend. The Pensacola Yacht Club is hosting the Southeast US Optimist Dinghy Association championship. Around 140 young sailors, ages eight to 15, are competing. They will race on two separate courses. And a lot of the competitors were out on the bay, practicing today.
"These are the beginners up through the semi-advanced kids that are going to get involved in the sport of competing sailing, hopefully over their lifetime."
The boats will launch from the beach next to Sanders Beach Community Center. The races will begin at eleven, both Saturday and Sunday morning.
