A National Regatta: June 21 - 24
The National Class A Scow Association will celebrate its 15th anniversary this year on the big waters of Lake Winnebago! The lake that A Scows were originally designed for never fails to exhilarate every time we are there. Oshkosh Yacht Club (OYC) was the home of the first A Nationals back in 2004 and is a special and storied place for our fleet. It is also important to note that the A Scow is celebrating 119 years of racing this season and we will race for the Felker Cup on Thursday evening June 21 to continue this time-honored tradition. Every time we go to OYC we compete for one of these historic awards, which are older than the America’s Cup. Learn more!

The OYC will host its 14th annual X Boat Xtreme Regatta. This back-to-back race format, with a late Monday morning start, is a must-sail regatta for every X enthusiast.
