Oshkosh To Host 2011 Melges 17 ILYA Championships
27 June 2011
The Oshkosh Yacht Club is proud to host the 2011 ILYA Melges17 Championships. The Melges17 is new to their yacht club. Fleet captain David Harrison is attempting to use this regatta as a spring board for growth of the Melges17 fleet in Oshkosh.
This year’s event will place a large emphasis on completing the six scheduled races. The timing for Saturday night’s social event is flexible to allow for racing late into the evening if necessary.
In addition, an all-inclusive meal plan will be available during registration hours for the low price of $18 per person / $36 per boat. Your meal plan purchase will include lunch Saturday and Sunday, along with a wrist band for the social event on Saturday evening.
The social event Saturday is being held at The Boatyard Bar & Grill (http://www.oshkoshboatyard.com – 425 Nebraska Street), where you can get all you can drink domestic pitchers and soda from 6-9pm, along with an appetizer spread. This new restaurant is located along the shores of the Fox River near downtown Oshkosh and features a gorgeous outdoor patio space, spacious bar, and shuffleboard & darts for those that want to continue the competition off the water! A special thank you goes to our sponsors, Holiday Automotive Group (http://www.holidayautomotive.com) and Ralph Harrison.
The Oshkosh Yacht Club encourages all ILYA Melges17 members can make it to Oshkosh for this year’s championship event.
