2021 Skamania Coves Invitational Regatta : Columbia Gorge Racing Association

About Event

CGRA is excited to welcome the Tasar and Laser Masters classes back to the Gorge for our first annual Skamania Coves Invitational Regatta. For this special event, we're temporarily moving our base camp a couple of miles upriver to the Resort at Skamania Coves, a beautiful 30-acre waterfront property on the Washington side of the Columbia River. The CGRA race team is aiming for fun, informal racing that takes full advantage of the venue’s epic waves and wide-open spaces. Start times will be flexible to align with optimum sailing conditions and accommodate onshore socializing. Think of this as a “bush regatta” for adults!
For more information on booking accommodation at the Resort at Skamania Coves, please see the Notice Board. Looking forward to seeing you this summer in the Gorge!

    The Resort at Skamania Coves is located one mile east of Stevenson, WA, and offers a range of lodging options, from tent and RV camping to luxury two-bedroom cabins, all with breathtaking views of the river and surrounding mountains. There’s ample lawn and beach area for staging and launching boats, plus a 100-ft dock. The cove is well protected and just a short sail from the start/finish line. Accommodations at the Resort include:
    • Six luxury cabins (sleep 4-6 each, $285-$350/night), plus a very cool Treehouse (sleeps 2, $285/night). Prices do not include taxes and cleaning fee.
    • Eight tent sites with convenient access to restrooms, showers, potable water, 110-volt power, and a coin op laundry.
    • Nine RV spaces with full hookups ($53.75/night including tax).
    To book lodging:

    All the usual COVID-19 precautions, restrictions, and contingencies will apply, in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations in effect at the time of the event. Fingers crossed that by August the emphasis will have shifted from “distance” to “social” but in any event, CGRA requires all regatta participants, including skippers, crews, and volunteers, to comply with all guidelines as specified in the Covid-19 Regatta Guidelines and sign and return the Assumption of Risk & Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/Covid-19 form (both documents available on the event website) as a condition of entry.
