Watching the Regatta
Spectator Boats: LYC will provide plenty of spectator boats. Regatta guests are encouraged to use LYC boats.
Coach Boats and Personal Spectator Boats: Public launch is available at the Oconomowoc City Launch. Cost/day is approximately $10 to $20, dependent upon boat size. No pier space will be available at the regatta site; you will need to bring a mooring for all coach boats and any personal spectator boats. Taxi boats will be provided for moored boats.
Overnight Storage: Optis may be kept at the regatta site at a place to be announced. Coach and spectator boats will need to be moored. Boat trailers will be parked in an area at the Oconomowoc Community Center. LYC accepts no responsibility for equipment.
Lodging: Hilton Garden Inns (262-200-2222) Staybridge Suites (262-200-2900)
Zebra Mussels: Unfortunately, La Belle has them. Consequently we will not be washing boats off at launching. Boats may be washed off at the end of the regatta.
