Come to the Junior Olympics' highest regatta and enjoy a week in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. While in town, explore other activities including hiking, biking, fly-fishing, golf, Farmer's Markets, and many festivals. We are proud to host this event, part of a nationwide series of regattas for youth. The goals are to promote the enjoyment of sailing and development of skills as well as provide an Olympic pathway for junior sailors. In 2013, 25+ events are planned in the continental United States and Hawaii and over 4,000 sailors are expected to participate.
