Announcing the 2019 Thistle Southeastern Championship (SEC) at Pensacola Yacht Club on April 6-7.


This is a blue chevron (Interdistricts) event. If you are coming to the MWE and/or the Orange Peel Regatta, make your Florida circuit complete and join us in Pensacola. If it will help you, we will arrange boat storage at a site convenient to you. Contact me or Greg Griffin.

Pensacola Yacht Club has been the host for Thistle Nationals 4 times and is always a gracious host for the Jubilee Regatta in November. Expect warm days, cool nights, great races, great winds, good food and awesome Bushwhackers. We will have more details later, but for now.

APRIL 6-7, 2019


Best wishes and Happy New Year,

Join us for the 2019 THISTLE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP which will be held in SandPoint Idaho July 21-26, 2019.  SandPoint has been rated as one of the most beautiful locations in the US and the weather is normally PERFECT in July, with no rain and temperatures in the high 70's.  This is a regatta that you don't want to miss.  The regatta web site is up (link below) so be sure to check this link regularly to see updates.  

Atlantic Coast Championship, Oxford, MD June 8 & 9, 2019

posted Sep 5, 2018, 5:48 AM by Thistle Class   [ updated Apr 9, 2019, 3:11 PM ]

The Atlantic Coast Championship will be hosted by the Tred Avon Yacht Club in Oxford, Maryland on June 8th and 9th.  The Notice of Race is posted at regatta network http://www.regattanetwork.com/event/18367

(also accessible through the TAYC website www.tayc.com)

Registration is open.  Register by June 1st to qualify for the early registration rate.

We are currently working on local housing so please let me know if you are interested and include details on # of people in your party, which nights you need housing for, special accommodations, etc.  Note, there is no camping at the club.  There are numerous hotels in nearby Easton, or splurge and stay at the Robert Morris Inn in Oxford which is adjacent to the club.

Also, remember, Oxford is a quaint town with lots of bicyclists and dog walkers and the Oxford Police force zealously enforces the 25 MPH speed limit.  (I heard of someone who was pulled over for going 26 MPH.)

We look forward to seeing you in June and the club is excited about hosting us, having just run the Star Worlds in October of 2018.
