Type of Event: Regatta
The Ugotta Regatta is a very popular annual regatta hosted by the Little Traverse Yacht Club in Harbor Springs, MI. The regatta is open to offshore racer/cruiser yachts (25' LOA minimum) as well as selected one-design classes (also > 25' LOA). Full information, including the NOR, is available via the weblink below.
LTYC’s Ugotta Regatta is open to all sailors. There is a city-required cap of 88 boats and registration is first come, first served. The series begins with one design racing on Friday followed a tour-of-the-bay course on Saturday and windward-leeward racing on Sunday. The weekend’s festivities kick off bright and early Friday morning with a fun tradition: a long line of happy people beginning at sun up outside Irish Boat Shop to purchase the 2012 Ugotta Regatta t-shirt. Each year, the shirt design changes and with a limited production, the lines begin early to score a coveted shirt. Friday night finds a Welcome to Harbor Springs Celebration at the Irish Boat Shop for racers only.
On both Saturday and Sunday mornings, the Club hosts the LTS Racing Team Pancake Breakfast. Open to the public and racers, the Pancake Breakfast is a delicious way for the boat teams to quickly fuel up before getting on the water. One highlight of the breakfast: the young Racers flip less-than-perfect pancakes over their shoulders to land on the roof of the sail shed behind them
