Dave Cool Icebreaker Regatta

Dave Cool Icebreaker Regatta

April 30  & May 1, 2022


In honor of Dave Cool, this is traditionally the first race of the season. This is a regatta for the hearty J/22 and J/24 sailors that are eager to race in the cold and typically very windy conditions – baptism by fire. Dave Cool enjoyed helping get others involved in sailing. He worked hard to help encourage the J/22 fleet to get their boats in the water and ready to sail.
