Weekly Colorado laser racing is with the Denver Sailing Association at Denver’s Cherry Creek state park.  Launch your laser at the marina.  Racing is free.  But to be scored you must join the DSA for about $40.  Wind is a pleasant 5-15 knots.  Wind is shifty and is from almost any direction at Cherry Creek.  Challenging and true lake sailing.  Boat race.  Race or Sail a Laser in Colorado or Utah.

 

2014 will bring the Grand Prix Laser No Coasts regatta to the Dillon Open at Frisco Bay on August 1-2.  The No Coasts attract top laser sailors from surrounding Districts and areas like the Twin Cities, Kansas City, Texas, and California, and gets 40-50 lasers on the line.  We look forward to surrounding districts making the trip to Dillon Colorado August 2-3.


There are a few National Laser events that represent Grand Prix points that accumulate for annual national ranking and one of them, the Laser Class 'No Coasts' regatta is coming back to Lake Dillon for the Dillon Open.  This will also represent the Laser North American District 23 Champs. Last year it was hosted in Park City, home to a very competitive Laser fleet. Several of their top sailors are excited to make the trip back to Dillon this summer for a very competitive laser regatta. 


The Aspen Annual regatta is in July at beautiful Lake Rudi and the Aspen Yacht Club.  Wind can be light to 20 knots.  Wind direction is predictable enough that the starting line is permanent.  The Aspen Yacht Club is on Frying Pan road about 18 miles from Basalt Colorado (RT 82 from Glenwood Springs).  The Aspen Yacht Club is on its own quiet harbor.  The Saturday night party, dinner, and campfire are a great summertime event.  Skippers, crew, and family can camp on the yacht club’s lawn.

 

The Colorado Laser Championships at the Grand Lake Yacht Club is our biggest and exclusively laser regatta in mid August.  The Grand Lake Yacht Club is an awesome venue at the scenic edge of Rocky Mountain National Park.  Wind is often from the southwest but very shifty, so again, true lake sailing.  Racing is on Saturday and Sunday.  Racers and families can camp on the very nice lawn at the yacht club.  Grand Lake is on US 34, 12 miles east of US 40 in Grand Lake Colorado.


Weekly Utah laser racing is with Sail Park City at the Jordanelle Reservoir.  Sail Park City is a thriving organization hosting a number of regattas including the 2013 Laser No Coasts and a great junior sailing program.  As many as 30 lasers are on the line.
