Rocky Mountain Racing Format:
The timing of the 2017 Rocky Mountain Regional Championship is scheduled to be a unique and timely tune-up for traveling and international teams on their way to San Diego NA’s and “The Road To Etchells Worlds 2017” in San Francisco. Early-August high altitude winds can be unpredictable and often require a full day of sun to heat up enough cloud action to produce consistent late day breeze so the RMRC will feature 4PM starts allowing competitors full days to play in the mountains and resorts that surround beautiful Summit County Colorado.
Regatta information, vacation & lodging packages will be announced on a web site coming soon. Save the date now for an Etchells championship like no other on “The Road to Etchells Worlds 2017!”
