TheDay.com: What better place to have the Queen’s Cup regatta than here, at the mouth of the Thames River?
“It was beautiful sailing, about 15 to 18 knots of breeze on a good course, and a lot of fun,” said Joe Hoopes from the bow of his 75-foot yacht, dubbed Palawan, after the day’s racing Saturday.
“It’s a very significant race,” he said. “If you win the Queen’s Cup, you’ve done very well.”
