There were 58 teams who attended the 2016 Thistle National Championship at the Eugene Yacht Club on July 23-39. They were treated to fabulous racing conditions and superior hospitality from the members of the Eugene Yacht Club. All 7 races were held in 10+ knots of winds and most had some great planing reaches. Not a drop of rain fell on the competitors, either on or off the water. Days were warm and nights were cool, which was perfect for camping at the club, which was the preferred housing option for most of the 160+ competitors.
