2017 E National Championships
New date is April 27-29, 2018
with a practice race on April 26th
Hurricane Irma's pending approach caused the NCESA to postpone their 2017 Championship Regatta to a later date.
The Carolina Yacht Club will host the 2017 E National Championship Regatta on these new dates. The Charleston South Carolina venue in April will not disappoint. It is absolutely a beautiful place to be and the harbor is spectacular for racing.
I believe the membership of the NCESA can help make this regatta even bigger and better. If your team had conflicts in September with the first days of a new school year - now is a new opportunity to start your E-Scow racing early with a wonderful big and important event.
The 2017 E National Championship regatta currently has 58 entries, and I envision even more support from our membership to make this a regatta one to remember for everyone involved, from competitors to volunteers.
We understand the great inconvenience caused by postponing the regatta. I sincerely hope with this quick announcement of a new date that people can negotiate changes in their travel plans and turn this disappointment into something to look forward to.
We wish and hope that all those in hurricane Irma's path are able to stay safe.
Thank you for your understanding.
