You’re invited to the 2014 Catalina/Capri 25 Nationals in Wayzata Minnesota. The Wayzata Yacht Club has a renowned reputation for hosting great regattas that are not only incredibly competitive but incredibly fun.
Lake Minnetonka, the summer recreational mecca of the Twin Cities. As one of Minnesota’s prestigious lakes, it is a 14,528-acre lake in the west-southwest part of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. The lake has numerous bays and islands which make up about 125 miles of beautiful shoreline. With its serene shores, various majestic islands and breath taking views, Lake Minnetonka has attracted thousands of visitors every year and is consider one of Minnesota’s most sought out tourist havens.
While hosting several One Design district regattas each year, WYC has also been fortunate to host numerous national regattas attracting sailors from all over the world. These include the 2009 Richardson Cup, 2011 Catalina 25, 250 & Capri 25 National regatta, 2011 Sonar Nationals and the 2013 J/24 Nationals. This year WYC with presenting event sponsor Sika Corporation - a leading supplier of elastic adhesive and sealing systems specifically designed for applications in caulking, leveling, bedding, sealing and bonding in the Marine marketplace worldwide, will once again host the Catalina 25, 250 and & Capri 25 National regatta (September 12-14, 2014). Winds at that time of year on Lake Minnetonka historically are in the 8-15 knot range, perfect for a 9 race regatta (include link to NOR). Dust off that trailer and hit the road!
