Fleet 6 is inviting all Harbor 20 sailors to enter a Harbor 20 mid-winter regatta over 3 days in Port Charlotte, FL Feb 3,4,5 2023. The event will be organized by the Charlotte Harbor Regatta Inc, whose annual event’s proceeds support the local community youth sailing programs. A few local charter boats may be available. We have an excellent RC, protected waters and beautiful warm weather.
To get an idea of how many will be able to attend, especially from out-of-town, please REPLY NOW to Rob Sisk, H20 Fleet 6 Captain, and let us know if you are interested in attending. An official NOR and registration link will come out shortly.
The Fleet 1 Championship regatta is this coming weekend, September 24-25 at Newport Harbor Yacht Club. Competitors will be vying for a Championship title in all three divisions. In addition to take-home trophies, the winners of A, B, and C divisions will have their names added these beautiful perpetual trophies, which are perpetually displayed at NHYC.
For those who might think they are not qualified to sail in a championship, you are mistaken! If you qualify per Fleet 1 bylaws I.F.8 – I.F.10, you are invited! Someone’s name will be added to each of the perpetual trophies, and it could be yours!
Enjoy two days of racing and dinner at NHYC Saturday night during this, the concluding event of the 2021 – 2022 racing season for Fleet 1.

American Legion Yacht Club is preparing for the next Sail for the Visually Impaired event – October 8, 2022 – and is seeking volunteers to skipper, crew and to provide boats. Each year visually impaired guests and their escorts spend the day sailing with volunteers. This is a wonderfully successful event that involves over 150 volunteers and has been running since 1990.
The H20 is a perfect boat for this event. It is easy to get in and out, sits folks comfortably, and is low enough that participants can reach out an touch the water.

Twenty-five Harbor 20s from six fleets coast-to-coast will battle it out for the class championship in Annapolis this coming week. They’ll sail 10 races from Friday through Sunday on Chesapeake Bay, and swap stories at the Friday dinner and other social events at Annapolis YC.
The dinner isn’t the only chance for sailors to get to know each other. Annapolis Fleet 5 members are hosting all the out-of-state sailors who wanted to stay in homes, and some Fleet 5 members will be crewing for out-of-staters. Competitors will also get to mingle in the AYC boatyard, as all boats in the regatta will be brought to the club, hauled out and stored there each night.
Racing starts each day at 11am Eastern. Click here to see the event page including results as they are posted.
