Click on the "Read more" link below for the results. This regatta was the Michigan District Championship.

Thanks to all who attended. Please feel free to send me any suggestions you might have for improving the regatta in the future.

Next year's regatta will likely be on one of three non-July 4th weekends in July. Let me know if one of these weekends is especially good or bad for you.
