  • Weekends (mostly Saturdays) May 11 thru September 15 (called the Gold Series) split into a various series per the race notice. First warning signal at noon, with second waning at 2pm.

 

Fleet History:

  • The Interlake has been sailed on Portage Lake since the early 70’s. The Interlake Fleet has hosted the nationals 4-5 times over the years, and annually hosts a fall invitational regatta. Fleet members from time to time travel to regattas off the lake including the Nationals.

Aside from all the on the water activities the Fleet members enjoy hanging out after the races at the club to socialize.

We hope you’ll join us on the starting line this season.
