Elk Lake Regatta

The FREE regatta scheduled for Feb 17th and 18th 2007 has been opened up to include all iceboats. There has been such great interest from other sailors. That now it is not only for Jboats. Free racing and trophies for all classes 1st-3rd place. There will be J boat racing and then sportsman class racing also. There will also be door prizes, drawings, goody bags and food!!
We will be grilling on the ice, food will be free or by donation. This will be a fun get together. With no cost for anything.
So far more than 40 boats confirmed as coming. Some A, B and C skeeters, sprinters, Jboats and stern steerers. The DN worlds and N/A’s are scheduled to start the same weekend in the same region. So some of the people who are coming are traveling with their DN buddies. (Some of our Dn'er friends may attend also if they are close enough. DN racing starts the 18th our Regatta starts the 17th)
J Boats will also get goody bags. Door prize include everyone!
The regatta is Feb 17th and 18th on Elk Lake, Elk Rapids Michigan 49629
You can launch at White Birch Lodge or Third St.
If you stay at White Birch Lodge, http://www.whitebirchlodge.org/ it is directly on the lake and your iceboat is right outside your front door. Elk Lake is approx 2miles x 10 miles. Normally by February we have 16" of ice.
