bad sign

Let us all hope that this single Covid-19 case does not become a trend…

The 60th Annual Little Traverse Yacht Club “Ugotta Regatta” has been cancelled due to Covid 19

Due to a LTYC employee testing positive for COVID-19 today, the LTYC Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the Regatta this year. As much as we all wanted the event to happen, we had to make this decision for the safety of our members, guests, competitors, volunteers, and staff. Words cannot express how disappointed we are; this is a gut-wrenching decision that no-one wanted to make. We extend our sincere apologies to everyone that has invested their time and resources in this year’s Regatta.

Throughout a very difficult 2020, the staff and member of LTYC worked hard to accomplish our vision of offering a high-quality, safe sailing event on the beautiful waters of Little Traverse Bay. All along we were determined to hold this event as long as we remained confident that we could do so consistent with safe practices. We tirelessly gave it our best — but unfortunately, today, this pandemic has hit too close to home. The LTYC Club House and all Club Operations will close today and remain closed until July 29th.

All registration fees will be refunded, and we are considering a discount option for those that want to roll-over their entry fee to 2021. More information on this will follow soon. We plan to be back next year to celebrate the 60th running of our beloved Ugotta Regatta.
