August 7 thru 10
Some helpful points...
The Championships are scheduled to immediately follow the Dillon Open Regatta,
which is normally a 3 day event. Please reserve August 4-6 for the
Dillon Reservoir, sometimes referred to as Lake Dillon, is located in the Rocky Mountains just 70 miles west of Denver along Interstate 70 - making for easy access from both the East and West.
Dillon Yacht Club operates from a facility that is set up each season adjacent to where Dillon Marina, a commercial business, operates. See map below. Details on how (ramp vs. hoist) boats will be launched, mooring, and trailer storage will be provided in the Notice of Race. Click here to get Google Map directions to the marina.
Don't mistake the elevation (9000 feet!) and the mountain vistas as indicating this is a remote location - Dillon is a full service community; plan on enjoying the dining and lodging available in town. There are campgrounds in the region but nothing close to the marina.
Monday August 7, the first day of the Santana 20 Class Championships, will include registration, equipment inspection, and a practice race. Equipment inspection will be limited - the goal is to get the majority of competitors to have their equipment inspected "back home" by their local fleet. Details will be provided in the Notice of Race.
