Regatta T-shirts now on sale
WORTHINGTON — This year’s Windsurfing Regatta and Music Festival T-shirt is now available for purchase at the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce.
This year’s shirt was designed by Jessica Pass, graphics manager at The Globe, and printed by J & H Screen Printing of Worthington This year’s 20th annual festival will take place June 6-9 on Sailboard Beach and include, for the fourth time, the US Windsurfing Championships.
Pass, a graduate of Worthington High School who still lives in the community, explained her contest-winning design for the 2019 Regatta T-shirt.
“The contest information says that the design has to incorporate the music and windsurfing elements, so that’s what I based it off of,” Pass said. “With it being the 20th year, I tried to simplify it a little bit. With the screen printing, it’s a metallic silver on the navy shirt.”
Pass was a winner of the T-shirt design contest on her second try. Her first entry was several years ago.
“When I was in high school graphics with Mrs. (Tricia) Mikle, I submitted one but didn’t win.” she remembered.
Pass now does all kinds of design professionally in her position at The Globe. She and her staff design and print 55 grocery ads each week that are printed by Forum Communications Printing. She also completes design work for multiple clients in the community, and has designed all the promotional material for this year’s Regata.
The T-shirt contest has become an annual component of coordinating the Windsurfing Regatta and Music Festival.
“We really appreciate and enjoy people taking interest in this and having fun with it,” board president Josh Miller said.
In addition to being available now at the Chamber office — located at 1121 Third Ave. — the T-shirt will be sold at the media tent during the festival. The tent will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. June 7, 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. June 8 and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 9.
