National's annual dinghy and skiff regatta will return in 2018! NYC invites dinghy and skiff sailors of all ages to participate in some friendly competition. NYC invites C420, I-14, 2.4 mR and any other single and double-handed classes with 5 boats or more, to register for this year's event.

History of The National Event
The National Event was first held in the summer of 2010 with a mandate to provide quality racing for skiff competitors. Since it's inception, the event has continue to grow, with 50 boats attending last year's regatta from clubs within the GTA as well as a number of sailing schools outside of the Toronto area. It is a good midsummer event for skiff competitors, who in the past have used this event as a benchmark in fine-tuning their racing skills for events held later in the summer. In the past, The National Event has welcomed youth and adult sailors from 29er, 49er, Club 420, 1-14, Contender and the 2.4mR classes.
This is a multi-generational event, one of the few to be held on Lake Ontario. It offers the opportunity for youth sailors to interact with competitive athletes a generation or two older than themselves, reconfirming that quality competitive dinghy and skiff sailing is available for all ages.
