This year marked the 60th annual Junior Sweepstakes Regatta. Hosted jointly by the Shrewsbury Yacht Club and Monmouth Boating Club, the regatta consisted of four days of racing Aug. 6-9 where junior sailors from five local boating clubs could test their skills on both the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers. Among the judges of the contest was Les Hathaway, who was a participant in the original race and who is proudly still a member of the Monmouth Boating Club. The many instructors and judges hope this regatta will continue to inspire younger generations of sailors for years to come.
