Amethyst Weekend Regatta

Amethyst Harbour, 20 miles east of Thunder Bay, on Lake Superior, is about as pretty a setting for a sailing weekend as anywhere on Lake Superior. The races are around local islands with Saturday's two races around closer islands and Sunday's single race around Caribou Island. All are stunning and Caribou's cliff's add real drama to the race. Saturday evening the Bailey's host a BBQ and make sure the sauna is really hot of all the Finnish wanna be's.

It's most certainly serious racing for the Crystal Trophy, sailed yearly for almost a century now, but any Lightnings that are not so serious are really welcome and would not be disappointed with the wonderful sailing. We'd be glad to billet those from out of town. We'd love to have your join us.
