Notice of Race

The  England District Championship will be hosted by Fleet 301 and the Malletts Bay Boat Club (MBBC). on July 9-11. Thirty six boats attended last years race held at Lake Massabesic, NH. and a similar turn out is expected.

Although the District Championship traditionally attracts the top sailors in the area, Malletts Bay is a great place for everyone to race, regardless of experience. Fresh water, no tides and limited boat traffic make this an ideal racing venue.The Outer Malletts Bay is about 3 miles wide and 5 miles long and the shore line is relatively low allowing for what many consider to be the best sailing conditions in New England.

We have contracted with Jon Singsen to serve as a coach during the regatta on Saturday.  Jon Singsen was the ILCA class coach for the coaching program in 1997.  He will video tape the races on Saturday and present a coaching session after dinner on Saturday. 

MBBC facilities are equally as attractive. A 2 ton hoist, an excellent launching ramp and adaquate dock space to moor 30+ boats make hosting the regatta a breeze. The club is casual and friendly with a great swimming  and lawn area for shore activities.

For those who choose to remain ashore Vermont offers a variety of attractions and events throughout the summer.

The Notice of Regatta will be available here in  early spring 1999. If you need more information contact:
