April 24-25, 2021
Sponsored by the Orcas Island Yacht Club and part of the second annual North Sound Party Circuit, this annual regatta promises great fun. As one of the first events to be cancelled at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, we are excited to welcome old and new friends in 2021. While we don't expect to be able to host group social events, we plan to run on-the-water racing.
The regatta is held at Rosario Resort on beautiful Orcas Island. With its unique north/south orientation and high bluffs, East Sound often enjoys better wind when there is little elsewhere in the area. Six miles long with very little power boat traffic, East Sound is an exceptional venue. Planned racing includes buoy and distance courses. Mooring and lodging are available through Rosario Resort (use code OIYC21 to get $10/night per room off room reservations) and there are plenty of activities for non-sailors to enjoy too. This regatta will be a Clean Regatta.
