This is a camping and boating event, so many inches of rain would have created massive problems for organisers and participants. I was to be the Saturday night dinner speaker at that event. Everything was put on hold for a year and the organisers have hit the restart button, picking up where they left off last year. It will happen on 1st and 2nd October 2016.
For those who are interested, I will be there and will be sailing my Paper Jet prototype. Anyone who would like to experience sailing a skiff like this will be welcome to take her for a sail as well. Note that a boat like this is not for novices, you will need to have reasonable sailing skills to sail her.

smaller sloop rig, depending on wind strength and the skill of the sailors.
Hope to see you at the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival.
