Preview: Temple Tiny Regatta – 2012

Temple Tiny Regatta III went off last weekend with it’s usual verve, panache and éclat.  But before you run off for a dictionary, let’s just say the TTR was its regular stylish and hilarious old self. Sailor suits, Mother Goose dresses, extremely cute children, funny running commentary over the PA system, dogs, various tongue-in-cheek awards, more dogs, and as always a sensational gaggle of mismatched sailing dinghies available at the dock for everyone to hop aboard.

So what’s the secret behind the TTR’s success? Gunwale Guard is certainly one. Most of the boats have day jobs as dockside tenders built to withstand the rough-and-tumble of the dinghy float. This makes them like bumper cars on the race course and this is good. In an event in which rules are few, such padding definitely contributes to the relaxed attitude of owners who willingly loan ot their boats.

    I unfortunately chose to slog into 35 knot head winds in the Swiftsure race on the other side of the country. Sure did miss the pure joy only a small boat can bring. Thanks Meggan for reminding us to “Be briny, sail tiny!”
