llsc reggae regattaThe Lake Lanier Sailing Club (LLSC) will host what they are calling “The biggest regatta on Lake Lanier in all its glory!” — The Reggae Regatta — the weekend of June 19, 2015.

Don’t know the difference between a mizzen gaff, a lugsail and a jib-headed spanker? Pffft.  Not to worry, Bucko.

Hint: A lugsail is quadrilateral sail that lacks a boom, has the foot larger than the head, and is bent to a yard hanging obliquely on the mast.  (As if you didn’t know, right?)

Don’t have a yacht that’s too big to fit under low bridges?  Pffft.  Not to worry, matey!  You can enter your “one-design dinghies” too.

Yes, Grog will be Served!

It’s no secret that sailors are known to have a sip, now and then, while rolling on the high seas.  So, you won’t be surprised that there will be a beer truck will be on site with a selection of regular and craft beers, along with rum (Aaarrrgghhh!) provided by event sponsor Real McCoy Rum.
