It’s been over 30 years since NFYC hosted Thistle Nationals, and we're looking forward to hosting the Womern and Junior regatta for the first time ever! We look forward to seeing all of you July 16, 2023!
Registration for the Women and Junior championship includes: coffee and continental breakfast, after race social, and awards.
The best winds on Flathead Lake are early in the morning, so expect to be on the water by 0800 and off the water by mid-day.
If you are transporting a boat from out of the area please ensure that it is thoroughly cleaned, drained, and dried, and be sure to stop at all watercraft check stations. Due to the heightened threat of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS), visitors must now document AIS Inspection clearance as a prerequisite for Regatta eligibility and use of NFYC launch and dock facilities. For questions, please refer to https://fwp.mt.gov/conservation/aquatic-invasive-species
. DO NOT LAUNCH prior to showing proof of inspection.
We will be hosting a green regatta registered with Sailors for the Sea. Please bring your cups, endevour to keep Flathead Lake clean, and be good stewards of our club and beautiful state!
