Regattas are a great opportunity for young sailors to sail in a new location and build new friendships while having fun. Events cater to every level of sailor from just wanting to have fun to being on the Olympic track and everything in between. Events normally last an entire day with some of the day preparing for the event, some sailing, and some downtime for wiffle ball, frisbee, and other fun games with new friends in between!
2020 Regatta plans are tentative and likely to be canceled due to the current COVID-19 situation. Below is the current schedule.
