Skiff and Dinghy Regatta at the National Yacht ClubThe National Event Returns!
After a 2 year hiatus The National Event dinghy regatta returns to NYC the weekend of July 15 & 16. NYC has invited Club 420s, International 14s, and 2.4mR to participate at the event. We are open to participation from other single and doublehanded classes. We will be looking for volunteers to help with a range of jobs. Please consider keeping one or both days open to help us stage a great event.
Regatta Chair David Foscarini is looking forward to a successful event both on the water and shore-side. For additional information, please contact David at email@example.com.History of The National Event
The National Event was first held in the summer of 2010 with a mandate of then Vice Commodore Fleet, Bob Magtanong, 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 racings skills for events held later in the summer. With this being the fifth year anniversary of The National Event, the invited fleets include 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 skiff sailing is available well into all ages of life.Racing Documents
