Junior Sailing Alumni Regatta
2017 is the inaugural year of the Junior Sailing Alummi Regatta. The regatta's purpose is to gather as many Erie Yacht Club Learn to Sail graduates from the school's 67 years to share their stories, camaraderie and competitiveness over the Club's Opening Weekend. The winning team will be awarded the Alumni Regatta Trophy.
Competitors may pre-register for the regatta on a first-come, first-serve basis. Entry will be limited to 60 sailors. Competitors should contact the EYC office at 814-453-4931 and indicate who they plan to sail with.
