The Nationally known EYC, fifteen miles west from downtown Eugene Oregon, has a long history of supporting all aspects of sailing, maintains a Sailing School for beginners through advanced racing, and sponsors National Class racing.
The excellent wind and water conditions, the lack of current and commercial boat traffic, and the size and shape of Fern Ridge Lake allow the use of the standard Olympic circle racing course. This and the availability of camping on the grounds make EYC an ideal place for regattas and other organized sailing events.
The now famous Memorial Day Regatta, first held in 1945 with some 23 boats participating, is now limited to 150 boats with competitors from clubs from all over the West Coast. The Harvest Regatta in August draws up to 100 boats each year. Come and join the fun.
