Your 2016 National Champion

Ben Herdrich and Rob Quiesser are your 2016 Champions. In perhaps one of the best regattas of the past 10 years all seven races were sailed in sunny windy conditions, a couple races dropped down windspeed wise at the end but it was action all the way.


There were 19 boats in attendence from most all of the fleets and we had a good mix of sailors. The venue of course was Green Lake and what more could you ask for. We had the lake to ourselves for three days.


There will more information about the regatta coming up. But Thank You to the GLYC the regatta chairs Mimi Hayashi and Maureen Bohleber it was great to get all the gear and the food was great. Thanks to the sponsors AO Smith and also Windward Boatworks for their generiosity.
