The Lake Harriet Yacht Club is hosting the 2021 MC Team Regatta!

Team Event:  Team sailing is unique. Few MC sailors have experienced it. After a season of doing our best to beat each other, coming together as a team to race against competing teams is special. Competitors become teammates with all the camaraderie that accompanies events like golf's Ryder Cup.

Entry Fees and Registration: $45 per boat. Lunch for skipper is included in registration fee. Please register at www.lhycsailing.com/

Classes and Eligibility: This event is open to all boats in the MC Class. Teams will be set prior to the competitors briefing by the regatta chair with input from competitors with goal of all teams have relatively similar boat speed and team racing experience.
