The Edison Sailing Center in collaboration with US Sailing and West Marine is proud to host the US Junior Youth Regatta – The River Romp – October 18th & 19th 2014, on the north shore of the Caloosahatchee River. Thanks to the dedication of volunteers, parents, former youth sailors, and our community, River Romp remains one of the largest youth regattas in the region.
