Sarasota Sailing Squadron Will Have To Wait

According to the information, the Sarasota Sailing Squadron will have to wait and wait could be until next year. As per the situation around, it seems that the club will be able to host the 72nd Sarasota Labor Day Regatta next year only. This edition of the event got canceled because of the lingering red tide.
