Ski Sail National Championships April 14-15

The formula is simple.  Every sailor must ski and every skier must sail, and every sailor must party.

This classic North Lake Tahoe event celebrates a long tradition of Tahoe mountain culture. Combining two of our spring passions, the 18th Annual Ski/Sail National Championships will take place April 14 and 15, 2012.

This is a three event challenge.

You must qualify in the skiing race, the sailing regatta and the party to be scored in the event. Every sailor must ski and every skier must sail, and every sailor must party. The sponsors are lined up and Squaw Valley is ready for our invasion! Entry fee includes lift tickets and parties. Get psyched, wax those boards and fix your trailer lights!

The Ski/Sail National Championships is North Lake Tahoe sailor Ralph Silverman’s brainchild, and a brilliant one at that.

Sailing Venue – Tahoe City, CA

Offering the most consistent winds on the west shore, Tahoe City is a great venue for sailboat racing. The Coast Guard ramp has great launching facilities close to the race course.
