Our reputation for hosting top class regattas has led to US Sailing selecting Pontiac Yacht Club to host the 2021 Championship of Champions Regatta. The event will be held on September 16th to 19th.
The regatta consists of 19 invited National, North American or World Champions from different one design classes plus one special guest skipper to all compete in Lightnings on Cass Lake.
This is a huge honor and is a result of being awarded the “US Sailing One Design Regatta of the Year” for our 2018 hosting of the International Lightning Class Associations Women’s, Junior’s and Master’s North American Championship.
PYC will be providing all the boats and equipment for the event and our generous and loyal members have stepped up to loan their boats. To make everything equal, all boats will have brand new sails from North Sails. For many of the competitors this will be the first time they may have sailed a Lightning in anger. It will be very interesting to see how these top sailors can adapt to a new boat and get the best performance out of it. Not to mention it will be great fun.
On the fun side of things, there will be a happy hour (free drinks) each day after racing and on Saturday evening we will host a party with a slap-up dinner and a lively band. All PYC members and friends are invited to the party and can also enjoy the steak and chicken dinner at a very reasonable cost (TBD), but must book ahead of time to ensure sufficient food is available. More details closer to the event.
