On Saturday, Aug. 4 and Sunday Aug. 5, the Malletts Bay Boat Club hosted the 16th annual Martin16 sailing regatta for sailors with disabilities who enjoy the competitive sailing experience.

There were 18 competitors including locals,  Northeastern and Canadian sailors.

Rain interfered with Saturday afternoon’s races, but sailors competed from 9-4 p.m. on Sunday.

The event was sponsored this year by the NDAA and aided by the work of volunteers. The regatta helped raise funds for the NDAA; this year, there was a silent auction.
