Forty-seven young Gulf Coast sailors competed on Pensacola Bay this weekend at the 10th annual SUBWAY Sailing Clinic and the USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festival and Independence Day Regatta. The festivities started on Friday July 1st with high-powered coaching clinics and conclude with the prize giving ceremony on Sunday afternoon.

Seven races were scheduled for Saturday and Sunday on courses in Pensacola Bay, but thunderstorms each day held racing to just one a day.

BP Oil joined in to support the event this year in sponsoring the safety boats on the course. In Sunday’s squall, this proved to be particularly helpful as gusty winds scattered the youth sailors all over the bay and the safety boats went to the rescue of several capsized sailors.

The Subway Junior Sailing Clinic, and the 10th annual Independence Day Regatta and the US Sailing Junior Olympic Sailing Festival on the Gulf Coast are presented again for the third year by local SW Alabama and NW Florida Subway restaurants. Pensacola Yacht Club in Pensacola, Florida hosts the annual festival and regatta from the clubhouse located at the mouth of Bayou Chico on Cypress Street, Pensacola.

Seth Cooke, Flying Scot 116 from Ft Walton Beach YC, with crewmates Darwin Pritchard and Hank Moran won the Flying Scot Class in the SUBWAY USA Junior Olympic sailing Festival and Independence Day Regatta on Pensacola Bay. -  Talbot Wilson - Copyright   Click Here to view large photo
