We have some great regatta improvements in store for you and your “shore party.”

1) Lower Costs: Two-day race registration last year was $80. It’s reduced to $50 this year!

2) Moving indoors: The dusty tent is gone and the Saturday night event will move indoors to the Lake Pleasant Waterfront Grille. Enjoy inside and outside waterfront seating for cocktails, dinner, and dancing with music from our talented AYC musicians.

3) Shuttles will be running from the Spinnaker Point RV/Camping and boat prep areas to the Waterfront Grille throughout the day and evening.

4) Marina Slip Rentals are available for $28/night. Stay the night next to the Waterfront Bar & Grille. To reserve a slip contact Jennifer Bittner at Pleasant Harbor Marina at 602/977-7370….OR…RAISE $500 for Leukemia Lymphoma Society…the first 5 that raise $500 get a FREE MOORING FOR THE REGATTA!!!

5) RV/Camping sites have been reserved to make sure you have a spot for your tent or camper. Make a reservation before January first to claim one of the reserved spots by contacting Pleasant Harbor RV at 1-800-475-3272. Tell them you are with the AYC Birthday Regatta.
