The Sarasota Sailing Squadron hosts the 69th annual Labor Day Regatta.
Participating sailors waited along the shore of City Island Park in anticipation for the 69th annual Labor Day Regatta.
Then they waited a little longer due to a lack of breeze that delayed the start of the regatta for a couple of hours. By 2 p.m. the wind filled sails and more than 200 boats were launched into Sarasota Bay prepared to take on one of the five courses for the event.
Day 1 of events concluded with a barbecue for participants and their families.
