Desert Classic Regatta/Fall Series 1, 2007

Winds were good for the Desert Classic Regatta, but it was not a peaceful day, with a speedboat "poker run" being hosted at the lake on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2007. cut right through the sail regatta's start-finish line, passing close by sailboats at high speeds. The Rio Grande Sailng Club hosted the Desert Classic Regatta at Elephant Butte Lake as the first regular fall series regatta of the season.

For a short while, the race area was surrounded by roaring thunder and great waves as a group of speedboaters came through during their "poker run".
"Rags", a Rhodes 19 owned by "Captain Groovy", is out on a great day for sailing.
