Greetings FWC Members!
I'm excited to let you all know that registration is officially OPEN for the 2023 FWC Championship Regatta!
Hopefully i'll give you everything you need to know here.. please feel free to ask any questions you have!
The regatta will be in Yankton, South Dakota - June 23-25. This is a beautiful sailing location that has been home to many championship level catamaran regattas in the past. If you haven't been here before, I'm confident you will love it!
We will have regatta check in on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. Racing will be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning.
Thursday evening we are planning a pre-race chat/training for any newer sailors or those who have less experience and want to ask questions about the race course, how to start, etc. Jane Sherrod will host this, and it is open to any sailors who just want the opportunity to talk through some things and participate and learn from an expert!
Friday evening we are planning on providing a Taco Bar and having lawn games available to play, like cornhole, lawn golf, bocce, etc. It should be a fun, relaxing evening where we can socialize and maybe have some friendly competitions.
Saturday evening, the Yacht Club will host a party with food and drinks, and some form of entertainment in the evening!
