Orange Cup Regatta Lakeland Florida 2023


             October 20-22 in Lakeland, FL, the 85th running of the Orange Cup Regatta

                   Pre race festivities included the Cypress Gardens Skiers- Impressive!

This post will feature several photos from an action packed race weekend.  I was one of the 'Crew' for Jim Aid and the A33 'In Cahoots Again' team.  Jim had a stellar weekend, winning all eight of the eight heats he was in. As far as I know no other team ran as many heats.

Here's several pictures to give you an idea of what it was like to be there. It was a perfect weather weekend, down here in sunny  Florida.

Get ready to race!

 Jim Aid on the charge!

One of two flip overs- no injuries except a battered boat.

Screaming- Class winner!

The winner of eight out of eight heats- Jim Aid!

                          Not a good day for the Penzoil team- a massive flip over; no one hurt.

                                              Thank you to all the volunteers and rescue crew!

                                            Thanks to the crew of the A33- Well done.
