Nor’Easter Greets Put-in-Bay Fall Regatta

24 mph wind gusts out of the northeast whipped through Put-in-Bay harbor at midnight on Friday and continued at 15 mph during the morning sunrise.  Fall Bay Regatta sailors braced themselves for rough seas and tough competition as they left for open water around 9:30 A.M.  Many of the vessels seemed aptly named for the day!
