Sailboat racing, friends, families, good food and fun. These are the words which best describe the Berlin Yacht Club Annual Invitational Regatta, and the 2018 BYC Regatta was no exception. Forty-one sailors from other clubs joined forty-seven BYC members and their families on June 16-17, 2018, at Berlin Lake for a great weekend of sailing, camping and fellowship.
The Force 5 Midwest Regional Championship was featured in the BYC Regatta this year. Eight Force 5’s competed on the same course with ten Thistles, twelve Flying Scots, five Highlanders, and six Lasers for a total of 41 boats in all. PRO Dan Goldberg set a great windward leeward course with a leeward gate and expertly managed three races on Saturday which lasted a total of about three hours.
