UPDATED - Champagne & Classic Boat Regatta


Update - August 10
Notices posted: 
Notice of Race  Sailing Instructions


Update - August 1: Now ONE Day Event!

Please take note of the Event Flyer detailing the changes for the Champagne Regatta.  After some discussion with the Keuka Lightning fleet we have decided to make this a 1 day regatta.  Our focus will be on a day of racing at beautiful Keuka Lake in the fall, a bit less emphasis  on the social aspect this year as you would expect.

Our club has been racing Lighting's, E Scows and MC Scows since July 4th and we feel our procedures in place will work out adequately to host an abbreviated Champagne regatta.  I attended the CNY district race last weekend at Henderson and felt the one day format worked out very well.  

Plan to make a weekend of it and visit some of the many local wineries or breweries, the Curtis Museum or Finger Lakes Boating Museum, all within 15 minutes of the yacht club. 

Please reach out with any questions.
