Sailors' Information


This is a three day event, Friday through Sunday. All boats are asked to pre-register, on-line. Click here for map of Club and Regatta facilities.

All registrations must be done online, and registration packets must be picked up at the Airstrip registration tent prior to going to the Waterfront (click here for map). Please note, when registering that Saturday lunch, the Saturday night party and Sunday BBQ require advance purchase.

Sailing on Skaneateles Lake will be the focus of the 80th Lightning Regatta. We are planning a great day of sailing, education and fun for Friday, with racing Saturday and Sunday.

You are responsible for making your lodging arrangements (there will be limited camping available at the Airstrip for a small fee, see Registration). Summers in Skaneateles can be very busy and you are encouraged to make lodging arrangements as early as possible.

Most of your time will be spent on the Lake or the grounds of the Skaneateles County Club. But be sure to carve some time to explore our beautiful village, dine in local restaurants, listen to lakeside music with the Community Band on Friday night, admire the historic homes, etc.
