    • Our permit allows lake use on Saturdays as well, so we may schedule fun races or reschedule canceled Sunday races on Saturdays.

  • Waiver: Every competitor must also sign a liability waiver. Copies will be available each Sunday at the Wayzata Community Sailing Center (our Home Base)
  • Safety Equipment Check (once per season): After registering with WYC and signing your waiver, you must show one of the Fleet Liaisons (myself or Matt Resch) that you have the following required equipment:
    • Helmet
    • Ice Picks (and string/cord to carry around neck)
    • Safety Leash - connecting your harness to the flag line on your bar
    • A functioning chicken loop on your kite bar, and knowledge of how to eject.
    • A jersey with a legible racing number - for scoring purposes
