Welcome to District 2 – the West Central District!

Our District is a big sailing mixing pot, because our venues are so diverse. Our clubs sail on everything from small 100 acre ponds, to the huge Gulf of Mexico.  Our regattas can be hot and windy such as the 2000 Nationals in Oklahoma City or cold and majestic as the 2007 Nationals in Dillon Colorado.

In 2013 we hosted the North American Championships at the Lakewood Yacht Club Seabrook, Texas.  The Yacht Club is on Galveston Bay, southeast of Houston, Texas.

In 2014 we hosted the Nationals in Lake Okoboji in Northwest Iowa. Lake Okoboji is known as one of the three “true blue water” lakes in the world, due primarily to its glacial origins and spring fed sources. In 2018, we hosted the Nationals in Green Lake, Wisconsin!

Check our District 2 calendar for more detailed information on our District regattas.

Come join us for good times and good racing. If you would like more information about Snipe sailing in the ten fleets of the West Central District, please contact me.

Fair winds and good sailing!
