MOONFLEET TOPS FPYC REGATTA

The Fort Pierce Yacht Club’s third annual sailboat regatta took place Saturday and Sunday.

High winds and high seas offshore forced the racing to take place in the Indian River Lagoon. The races were open to all community sailboaters in either racing or cruising classes. Ten area boats from the Fort Pierce Yacht Club and the St. Lucie Sailing Club attended.

First place went to Geoff Beiser of the FPYC, sailing Moonfleet, a 32-foot custom steel boat. John Bolduc of St. Lucie Sailing Club took home second place.

The FPYC winter series will kick off Jan. 29. There will be a skipper’s meeting at the Fort Pierce Yacht Club at 700 Indian River Drive at 8 p.m. Jan. 27. For more information, visit www.ftpierceyachtclub.homestead.com or call race captain Diane Korbey at 772-678-1623.
