For some reason my favorite drone sailing videos are the ones filming the American scows - (there is more Over here ). This video features fleet racing in the big monster ILYA scow, the A's.

A one race jaunt around Jamaica Bay. I'm sure they would be delighted to see some out-of-town visitors and been told, even though this is Brooklyn, there is plenty of parking around the club. See comments for more info from SCC members.
A one-or-two lap race around the Annapolis Harbor. The majority of entrants are classic cruising keelboats but there is always a smattering of small boats. This year John Z is entering his Classic Moth.
This is more of an event than sailing race but there is, on Saturday, a one-lap sailing race in the river starting around noon that is quite a hoot. I have done it twice in my Classic Moth Tweezer where I was racing in a division featuring a motley assortment of larger craft including Thistles, Core Sound 17's, Blue Jays, Celebritys, log canoes.
Hosted by John and Polly Hanson. This is a small affair, hosted out of their lake-front cabin around the time of Maine's fall foilage.
In a twist on normal advanced scheduling, the organizers wait until about two weeks before the event before announcing the location. A one lap race, usually going around something.
