Join us Friday, May 15 at 11:30 AM EST, as we have our weekly Lunch and Learn. This week's guest speaker is Spencer Raggio, of the Y-Knot Adaptive Sailing program on Lake George, New York. Spencer has over 20 years of involvement and leadership as a charter member of Y-Knot Sailing adaptive sailing program, is a Clagett board member and a US Sailing Basic Keelboat Instructor with Adaptive endorsement. 

Spencer has been sailing and racing Sonars for five years, crewed for Dave Whalen when he won the Clagett (steering with a sip and puff system he worked with Gene and Steve to develop for the Sonar), and crewed for Sarah Everhart Skeels to win the Clagett/Oakcliff match race event in 2019. Clagett Regatta is an adaptive sailing and disabled sailing non-profit for disabled and Paralympic athletes.

Spencer will be talking about what the adaptive regatta calendar typically looks like in the US, and what is being looked at in terms of cancellations and postponements. Spencer is participating in online meetings with US Sailing's Board, the Para Sailing Committee, the Clagett, and Y-Knot, so is able to provide a fairly up-to-date assessment.

See you Friday on ZOOM!
