NOR and Registration for the D15 Champs are Up!!

We are extremely fortunate to have the Rush Creek Yacht Club step up to the plate once again to host our District Championship this year! The regatta will be held the weekend of November 13-14 on the beautiful Lake Ray Hubbard. We had over 50 boats attend last year and I’d love once again to have a strong turnout. Jeff Progolhoff who gave us excellent races last year will once again be our PRO so you can expect everything to be top notch both on and off the water!
We already have 18 registered so far!!
Please let Jack or Myself know if you have any questions or concerns!

After a difficult 2020, the Easter bunny is back and better than ever as he prepares to host ILCA/Lasers at Austin Yacht Club with the help of the legendary Fred Schroth!

This second stop on the District 15 Circuit will be held on April 3rd and 4th at the always beautiful Austin Yacht Club on Lake Travis. We have sailors coming in from as far as Florida, New Jersey and maybe even Colorado if they can dig themselves out of the snow!

D15 Championship Change

Good news everyone!! Though COVID cancelled our original location for district champs at Canyon Lake Yacht Club, the Rush Creek Yacht Club in Heath has stepped in and has offered to help us put on an event  on November 21/22nd. 

This will be a two day event with lunches and tech shirts provided (shirts for those who sign up early). Rush Creek is known for their long fetch, big waves, and blue water. We are anticipating a great mix of adult and junior sailors, some of whom will certainly give the adults a run for their money.

Registration Here: http://www.rcyc.org/2020/laser-class-district-15-championship-1121-22/

Please do your best to sign up early as it really helps the regatta organizers plan the regatta. We have had a bunch of regattas cancelled this year, so we need to take any opportunity to get on the water and keep the rust off!!!
