A NEW REGATTA IN HONOR OF OUR 125TH ANNIVERSARY
Since its beginning, Columbia Yacht Club has been dedicated to the sport of sailing and the art of yacht racing. From the glorious schooners of earlier centuries to the go-fast designs of today, Columbia members have proudly sailed under the Club burgee, bringing glory to the trophy case and stories to the bar.
Our 125th Anniversary year recognizes this racing tradition by inaugurating a new regatta to southern Lake Michigan. The Columbia Cup Regatta is a two-day event that will offer both high-caliber buoy racing and a competitive distance race. Awards for both the buoy races and the distance competition will be given at post-race parties during the weekend. The highlight of the awards ceremony will be the announcement of the overall regatta winner, which will be recognized with a new perpetual trophy, the Columbia Cup.
