Cowbell Regatta

The annual Cow Bell Regatta features the one-design fleets from both the Louisville Sailing Club and the Derby City Yacht Club. 

I wanted to go ahead and give a heads up for this years cookout for both clubs to join. This was organized last year to get both clubs involved together, so please make sure to plan this event in your calendar with your family and friends.

All the land activities will begin at 5:00pm at the Louisville Sailing Club.

We will organize sailboat races during the day for those that want to play on the water before the cookout. 

We will have live music, plenty of food, beverages, corn hole boards, swings and other games for kids, a camp fire for marshmellows, and a beautful view of the river.

See you on the water.

Team Spotless Racing, S2 7.9 #232


Cow Bell Regatta sponsored by Four Roses Bourbon

All proceeds are donated to River Cities Community Sailing Program.

All members from RCCSP, DCYC, LSC are welcome to join the cook out.  Please bring your family and friends for good food, great scenery, live music and games for the family. (No Jarts this year, BIG mistake….)
