55th Annual Wurstfest Regatta
Registration is now open for the 55th Annual Wurstfest Regatta, hosted by the Lake Canyon Yacht Club, located in the Texas hill country, on the north shore of Canyon Lake, half way between Austin and San Antonio.
The Regatta is held over two weekends. Wurstfest Regatta I, November 3-5 is comprised of board boats and centerboard boats. Wurstfest Regatta II, November 10-12 is host to keel boats and multihulls. We typically have 150-175 boats over both weekends so there is great competition on the water and lots of camaraderie on shore. The two weekends of sailing also coincide with the annual Wurstfest Celebration in New Braunfels. LCYC is very proud of the many volunteers who do everything possible to provide you with outstanding race management, great food, and entertainment. Those who have been here before (and many have come year after year) list the Wurstfest high on their list of preferred regattas. We hope to see you on Canyon Lake this November!
This year’s NOR contains language related to our current low lake levels.
There are two different late fee dates, one for WFR I and another for WFR II.
Item 20 in the NOR refers to how both registered skippers and former skippers will be notified of a possible cancellation of WFR II.
Full details for both weekends can be found on the Wurstfest I and Wurstfest II pages on this site. Glen Graham, this year’s Wurstfest Regatta Chair, can help with additional general information, while Elizabeth Bentzen is handling questions relating to registration.
LCYC has limited space for those of you who want to camp; availability is first come first serve. There are also several cabin style camp grounds close by, as well as USACE campgrounds, several hotels and short term rentals (Air B&B, VRBO) within 30 minutes of the lake. Go to the Local Information page of this site for more information. Also on that page are local weather links, information about the New Braunfels Wurstfest celebration, and a guide to other Canyon Lake amenities.
No pets are allowed at LCYC during the Wurstfest Regatta.
