Start planning now for the 3rd Annual WrinkleBoat Intergalactic Championship Regatta & Ran-Tan / Potter Yacht Invitational

January 17 - 19th, 2014 at Lake Pleasant, Arizona.

The gracious hosts are the Arizona Yacht Club at their Birthday Regatta! 50 + years of sailing in the desert.

For 2014 we have invited the Potter's - P-14, P-15, P-19 and 'any other' boats that 'started life' as a Potter! (You know who you guys and girls are.) A challenge goes out to all Potter sailors near and far - come have some fun.

In 2013 the wrinkleboats had the second largest fleet with 12 boats racing!

Three days of winter racing in the warm Arizona desert! Camping or resorts - the choice of accommodations is up to you. Slips are available and group dining is on tap.

The goal is to educate and develop sailing skills via a racing and lecture format - Guest Speakers are jumping on the wagon - a full list to come shortly.

Contact Gary O. at gilasailr {at} for any questions you may have about facilities/Lodging/Entries etc.

The Event web page,, will be updated shortly.

See you at Lake Pleasant January 17-19, 2014

PS - Dry storage facilities are available if you will be sailing later in February at Lake Havasu.
