The Fall Classic ~ 43rd Edition!

And... we're back! It's number 43 this year! We are returning to a 2 day regatta with the usual amenities of on-site camping, provided meals and social gatherings. Lake Lanier Sailing Club opens on Friday, November 5th, for camping (free) and tuning up for racing that starts Saturday morning. Please contact Chris V if you want to come earlier in the week. That date is a bit later than normal and right at the peak of fall color so motel rooms may be scarce. Make reservations pronto. Camping is pretty civilized at the club and, new this year, we have a limited number of electrical hook-ups for small RVs or trailers.

Longboards have generally been the call for racing at Lake Lanier but all are welcome. Foilers have made an impressive showing but, so far, lake conditions have put the podium out of reach. Konas or any one design class with 5 or more entries will get a separate start, and be scored as a separate trophy group. Watch the forecast and pack some little stuff as you see fit... it can be a lot of fun!

Non-racers are welcome for the weekend to sail or hang out. Entry for racers is just $45 and includes 5 meals, trophies, cool swag and cheap beer. Meal deal for non-racers is $30. The shirt is a long sleeved polo, tastefully pimped with the embroidered event logo and is available as a separate purchase - $30. There is no pre-registration but please RSVP to if you intend to come.

Please see the Provisional Notice of Race for a list of accommodations, schedule and other info. See the latest info, forecasts and conversation here: Lakecam at the venue:

I hope you can make it!
