South Florida Optimist and Laser youth sailors came out in force October 24 – 25 at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club for the annual Halloween Howler Regatta.  After the first fierce day of racing the youth ditched their sailing gear for Halloween costumes to trick-or-treat among the member decorated boats.  It was back to business on Sunday to settle who would take home the hardware.
