Please come join us for some excellent racing on one of North Carolina’s beautiful natural lakes. Lake Waccamaw is located in Southeastern NC and is the largest of the state’s “bay” lakes. Waccamaw Sailing Club is proud to announce our 44th Annual Indian Summer Regatta, October 14-15, 2017.

Many sailboat classes are expected to attend. We are expecting Hobie 16’s, 17’s, and 18’s to be in attendance. We are also expecting a few F16’s, A cats, Nacras, and Isotopes to be in attendance. Three boats makes a class! Tell your friends!

Lake Waccamaw Sailing Club is situated on a sandy shore along the lake. There are plenty of grassy areas for rigging and beach access for launching. We also have boat ramps if you prefer to launch in that manner. We have large male/female changing rooms, hot indoor and outdoor showers, and restroom facilities. We will be serving a catered chicken and BBQ dinner Saturday night under our large, spacious pavilion.

There is plenty of room to accommodate R/V and tent camping. Please pm me if you have any questions about camping or need help with lodging. The NOR contains details about accommodations. Feel free to pm me with general questions as well.

Online registration can be found here, along with the NOR for the event.

Monohulls are also welcome to attend this event. I know we all have friends that haven’t yet seen the light, but please tell them to bring their boat and join a variety of other monohulls on the water. Catamarans will have no issues.

*****Note to monohulls: Waccamaw is a shallow lake, averaging only 8-9 feet in depth. It is consistently 8-9 feet throughout the center of the lake, but retractable centerboards/keels are needed for launching at our facility. There is a state ramp that can accommodate deeper keels .*****

I don't own a Hobie and have never sailed, but I am looking for one and some people to teach me some good habits. Is there any way I can come hang out with you guys and get paired up with some experience?
