It is with great regret that Fresno Yacht Club announces the cancellation of the 2020 High Sierra Regatta. We had hoped that a socially distant sport would be allowed to continue, but in the end, our insurance carrier advised they won't provide coverage during a pandemic.

Let's hope for a better 2021 and returning to racing in the Sierras.

NYN Series

In the absence of the usual Huntington Lake series we are trying to have some fun informal activities for those of us who miss racing.  For this fun series, we may make handicap adjustments as the series progresses. • The series begins this coming Saturday, June 27, with a reverse handicap start. Your start time depends upon your boat type. See below for the starting time for your yacht. If yours is not listed, contact the Nat Gildersleeve at natgildersleeve@gmail.com  or 559 970-3679 at least by the day before the race to obtain a start time. • There is no race committee, so you are on your own to make sure not to start before your designated start time. Official time may be obtained by GPS, Atomic Clock, www.time.gov on smart phone or tablet or other automated time system. • The course will be Start-P4-P8-Finish.  Thats all the marks we have right now.  The first boat to finish is responsible for recording the first 5 finishers and sending them to Nat Gildersleeve.  Have fun!!
