Cancelled: 2021 Menominee Regatta

Unfortunately, the 2021 Menominee Windsurfing Regatta is cancelled, due to the city’s Waterfront Festival also being cancelled.

I want to thank Bill Caley and the entire team that puts on the regatta for their decades of great events. It has always been a fun time there. Hopefully our paths can cross again sometime soon.

So, the regatta won’t be happening, nor the Festival, nor the fireworks.

But, the tourist beach (locally known as Fat Lady Beach) is still open and available for windsurfers to launch on their own, and we believe camping is still allowed there.

Worthington Regatta Results

We had another great weekend of racing in Worthington, MN. Saturday racing had shifty winds in the 0-10 mph range with lots of position changes and tactical racing. Sunday had some famous Worthington Wind that built to over 25mph by the last race. 5 races were run each day. The City of Worthington had their music festival to keep everyone entertained when they weren’t on the water.

Here are the Regatta Results for A Fleet and Sport/Kona Fleet.

Next up is the Reservoir Rendezvous July 9-11 in New London, OH.
