Ahoy, Matey!!  ARRRR you ready for some RACING!!

Batten Down the Hatches – A BIG event is being planned!!

Come join Racine Yacht Club and Sail Racine for a week of Fun and Racing!

Sail Racine will be hosting the Buccaneer North American Championship in concert with a Formula 16 US National Catamaran Championship and an Open Multihull Championship. The Buccaneers will have their own course, race committee, etc. but will come together in the evenings for some great dinners, music and parties and get a chance to interact with the multiple classes and create new friendships.

From August 3-5, you will have an opportunity to receive expert race training from Red Gear Racing’s world class Olympic sailing coaches Robbie Daniel and Jill Nickerson.

Join in on August 6 and 7 for a Racine Yacht Club Regatta for all classes of sailboats.  It would be a great warm up race and give you some time to get to learn the lake.

Don’t forget to bring the family – there will be a host of other activities to enjoy.  On August 8th,  new sailors are invited to join the “PUBLIC and YOUTH, LET’S GO SAILING Experience” sponsored by RYC, the Catamaran Racing Association of Wisconsin and the Buccaneers.

During our championship, there will also be youth and family activities including a world famous RAINGUTTER REGATTA, and a first ever OPTI PADDLE THE DITCH WATERMELON RELAY.

Not only is the Racine Yacht club located on the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan, it is also located right next to the stunning 5 mile long NORTH BEACH (play some beach volleyball, relax in the sun, go for a swim) and has access to a kids playground and is a short walk to downtown Racine or the Racine Zoo.

Details for the week are still being worked out, but you can expect to enjoy a lot of fun with some theme parties along with great music and food.
