The Youngstown Yacht Club is set to hold its 10th annual CanAm Challenge and Great Lakes PHRF Fest on July 28-30, for two days of hosting competitors from all over the U.S. and Canada.
Organizers said, “As the largest sailing event on Lake Ontario, the CanAm Challenge and Great Lakes PHRF Fest is more than just a regatta.”
Mike DeDario, chair of the 2023 CanAm Challenge and Great Lakes PHRF Fest, said, “We are incredibly excited for this year’s event, and look forward to welcoming our friends and neighbors to enjoy all Youngstown has to offer: the camaraderie, the good times and, of course, the excellent sailing.”
A press release stated, “Great racing and a good time guaranteed, this year’s event features live music by Tim Britt Band on Friday and Silver Arrow Band on Saturday.
“Bringing back the infamous ‘beer line,’ the weekend will also celebrate what would have been the 50th Level Regatta with a throwback party on Saturday, July 29. Open to the public, the party encourages guests to dig through their closets and resurrect past Level T-shirts and Mount Gay Rum hats for a contest awarding prizes to the oldest shirt and hat.”
