Racing will be held on beautiful Dillon Reservoir from the Dillon Marina where sailors enjoy sunny days and spectacular views of the snow-capped Rocky Mountains. The regatta is being hosted by the Dillon Yacht Club, the nation’s highest yacht club at 9,017 feet above sea level, located just west of the Continental Divide, a 70 mile drive from downtown Denver.

A great schedule of racing, entertainment, food and other special events has been planned and is sure to be a memorable event for all participants and their families. The weekend will include competitive sailing and family fun in one of the most beautiful settings in the world.
