July 2011
40th Annual Chelan Sailing Regatta
And C-Lark 14 World Championship
regatta start

Well, we might be pushing it a bit with the C-Lark world championship thing since it is about the only C-Lark race we know of but think big right?

The Lake Chelan Sailing Association is pleased to invite you to sail in our annual regatta September 10 & 11.

This event is open to all sailboats and we will award one design classes fielding three or more boats and rate everyone else according to Portsmouth ratings.


Our event is known far and wide for cheap trophies but lots of fun sailing on fresh clean water and a decent party on Saturday night.


To keep your cost down we offer free camping for tents and RVs at the Jones place located 2 miles from the race venue. Send your registration today!

Why Regatta?
The regatta helps fund our free community sailing lessons and other boating education programs. 
We model this event to give sailors a chance to race whether it is their first time racing or they have earned national titles. While we try to operate an organized event we try not to be stuck up about it and want everyone to have a safe and fun time on the water. It isn't about the cheap awards, it's about sailing, meeting new sailing friends and pushing your skills.
We know travel can be expensive so we talk the City into waiving launch and parking fees and offer free camping offsite. The registration fee of $25 is about the lowest you will find for an event, you are welcome to pay more if you wish. If you want in-water moorage the City will charge for that and you should make your reservations soon (see NOR).

Join us September 10 & 11!
