Group brings sailing regatta back to Lake Bemidji

BEMIDJI -- A sailing regatta will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday July 12 at Diamond Point Park, 1700 Birchmont Drive NE.

Registration will begin at 10 a.m. with the starting gun at 11 a.m. Organizers said they've recently reformed the Lake Bemidji Sailing Association.

During Saturday's event, boats will be classified for handicap ratings, so regardless of a boat's sail size or hull speed, first-, second- or third-place winners will be based on best tacking strategy and sail trimming.

The event currently has 14 sailboats, but day-of-event registration is allowed. There is no cost for the event.
