LCYC Skiff Regatta on Lake Pepin, MN

This event is hosted by the Lake City Yacht Club 1.5 hrs S of Twin Cities, MN on Lake Pepin. Lake Pepin is a part of the Mississippi river. Pepin is a large lake and river current is not a factor nor are weeds. We have done this event since its inception in 2005 and it is very fun and a beautiful location to sail.

2014 10th Annual Lake Pepin Regatta

Ten years! The Lake City Yacht Club has been putting this regatta on for 9 years making this the 10th anniversary! You have to be there! Date to be determined but late July or early August seems likely.

2012 Lake Pepin Skiff Regatta

Five boats in tow we set out for Lake City MN for the annual pilgrimage to the Mississippi. We had a bunch of high school sailors and their coach filling spots on most boats. We had five 14's on the start line. A pretty good showing for the Midwest. The wind varied quite a bit from really light to windy enough to provide twin trapping conditions upwind and down at times.  Pictures

2011 Lake Pepin Regatta

The rain showers mostly held off and we raced six races on Saturday with light winds some trapping was possible and the wind held up. A storm waited until we were on shore to roll through. Chasing a jib through a park in driving rain is funny when it is someone else. All ended well. The weather cleared enough to enjoy dinner on the deck of the Yacht Club. 

Sunday was warm and sunny but very little wind. After an on shore postponement racing was canceled for the day. Two 14's went out after the awards and gave solid proof that the wind was to light. See the pictures of day two as some went water skiing and others floated about. 

Thanks to Allen and The Lake City Yacht Club for another great event!
