2024 Canandaigua Dinghy Regatta NOR

The Canandaigua Yacht Club ( is hosting the Canandaigua Dinghy Regatta on July 26, 27, and 28, 2024. Nearly all FD sailors who have sailed on the east coast are likely familiar with CYC as the hosts of the over 50 consecutive Cannonball Regattas, as well as many NA and Nationals over the history of the class. For much of that time, the Gorbolds were active (and fierce) competitors on that lake, and this year’s NA will feature Jonathon Gorbold as PRO with Anna assisting (contact). Jonathan, Anna, and members of the Canandaigua Yacht Club hosting the Canandaigua Dinghy Regatta last year. We hope to see you at this year’s event.

51st Cannonball Regatta 2010

This year attendance at the Cannonball was not up to the usual numbers – but did include 4 boats that had been in CA for the FD Nationals in Santa Cruz and which were delivered to CYC by Paul Hemker. Grand children’s graduations, and other commitments, including emergency appendectomies kept folk away.
