PORT SALERNO -- On Jan. 25 from 5 to 7 p.m., board members of the Stuart Sailfish Regatta SSR invite the public to attend a meet and greet reception at the new Reef Restaurant in Port Salerno (formerly Finz).
There will be an opportunity to see two grand prix race boats, "Bad Influence," GP79 a grand prix hydroplane and S79, a 2.5-litre stock hydroplane race boat and meet the drivers of these top-ranked boats. Both boats are owned by John MacDonald, vice president of the SSR and owner of EMS in Stuart.
There will be happy hour drink and appetizer specials so plan to spend some time learning more about this year's regatta from April 19-21 and enjoy the new restaurant.
Attendees will also have a chance to register to win free tickets to the race and a chance to ride in one of the powerboats.
