Regatta roulette stakes are high this year

Those planning on celebrating the Regatta the night before are in for a tumultuous morning tomorrow. The noonday gun on Signal Hill will be fired at 6:30am if is decided that the Regatta is to go ahead, but the Weather Network says that the capital region is in for a drizzly and moderately warm day. On the plus side, winds are expected to be low. If the Regatta is a go, it will be the 193rd iteration of the event – North America’s oldest sporting event. Check out the Regatta’s website for some interesting tidbits of history, and to see who the major players in tomorrow’s races are.
