The Southeast Regional kicked off again at Carolina Yacht Club 1853 at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. The regatta started off with some excitement on the way out to the Ocean Course. On the 45 minute sail out to the Ocean, Sailor Jamie Deale from Southport N.C., noticed a man being pulled out into the inlet and struggling to keep his head above the waves and tired.
