HIGH SIERRA REGATTA
July 11-12 and July 18-19, 2020
Preparations for the 2020 High Sierra Regatta are well
on their way and there are some exciting changes for
this years regatta.
The Ultimate 20 and Viper 640 fleets will hold their
Pacific Coast Championships as part of the HSR, and
the Lido 14's will hold their National Championships
during the first weekend.
Plan on sticking around after the racing on each of
the Saturdays as the Fresno Yacht Club will be hosting
a Beach Party and BBQ. Firestone Walker will be
onboard serving up some of their outstanding beers,
and we will have available Hamburgers, Chilli and
Sausages along with Salad and Vegetables. It is going
to be a fun evening. Bring your own chairs and be
sure to enjoy the food, stories and camaraderie with
your fellow sailers.
The US Forest Service intends to re-open Rancheria Campground
prior to the High Sierra Regatta. We will update this page as
we receive further information.
