2017 Chautauqua Nationals Registration Page

Thank you for your registration for the 2017 Thistle Nationals at Lake Chautauqua in western New York State. Registration fees must be paid by July 7 (postmarked by 7/7, or in our hands.)  We need real numbers  of competitors and guests to plan appropriately.  Boat parking spots will be assigned in the order of registration.

Your registration fee ($320.00) is fully refundable until June 15, and partially refundable (less $50.00) between June 15 and July 7.

The registration includes racing guided by US Sailing certified race officers and judges, safety boats, 3 banquet tickets, free beer, wine, and pop after races, the usual treasure trove of TCA trophies, 1 aluminum water bottle, 3 reusable cups, and most importantly, a week of sailing fun with your extended Thistle family.

Three important notes regarding registration:

  1. Registration is not complete until:
    a) full regatta registration amount is paid ($320) by July 7, AND 
    b) you have sailed the required qualifying event(s) to be eligible to compete in Thistle Nationals, as outlined in the RULES of the Thistle Class Association.
  2. Skippers 26 years old and under, may apply for the youth registration fee waiver.  The TCA will cover the cost of regatta registration for those boats.
  3. Registrations completed between June 16 and July 7 will incur a late fee of $50. 
  4.  Registration applications after July 7 will be considered on an individual basis and may not be accepted.
