Cool Breeze for King of Clubs Regatta
Nahant Dory Club ends Swampscott reign.
The breeze in Nahant Bay was just enough for some hot action in the Sixth Annual King of Clubs Regatta Saturday, and it took a tie-breaker to crown the Nahant Dory Club 2011 Champions.
The air off Nahant Bay wouldn't fly a kite, and that forced a delay in the 1 p.m. start. But around 1:30 p.m. a breeze found its way past Egg Rock and the race was on. At the end of the day, Nahant and Swampscott were tied with 53 points, the Lynn Yacht Club in their wake with 56.
