Race 5 in the NW Trek, Lake Chelan!

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

The 41st annual Lake Chelan Sailing Regatta, organized by the Lake Chelan Sailing Association, will take place on September 7&8, 2013. This event is open to all sailboats and sailors of all skill levels. Classes may include AC72, San Juan 21, Flying Scot, Hunter 140, multis and Portsmouth.

Registration will be available starting at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday. The skipper’s meeting will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday with the first race starting at 11:00 a.m. No starts will occur after 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Saturday Evening there will be a dinner party at Rusty’s Nut Farm starting whenever everyone gets there. Musicians are encouraged to bring your instruments. Don’t miss the party!

Racing will resume on Sunday with the first race at 10:00 a.m., no races will start after 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. (We try to make it easy on the road warriors). The plan is to sail at least three races on Saturday and at least two on Sunday but plans are subject to change depending on conditions.

This is a fun event and is not a points race for most classes, protests are discouraged but friendly conversation or water balloons at ten paces to help educate less experienced sailors is welcomed. All sailors are required to comply with Washington State Boating Law and the event is conducted following most of the USSA Rules of Racing or at least the ones we can remember.
Lake Chelan is a resort area with many hotels and camping accommodations, more information is available by contacting the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce at 1-800-4CHELAN or Chelan City Parks at 509-682-8024. Free limited facility camping for tents and RVs is available at Rusty’s Nut Farm as well (large grass area and a couple of dogs to keep you warm).

Join us for a great weekend of sailing! Race Chair, Russ Jones 509-860-3616
