Sail Park City hosts inaugural Jr. Jordanelle Reservoir Regatta

JORDANELLE STATE PARK, Utah — On Saturday and Sunday, Sail Park City held its first annual Jr. Regatta with local youth athletes on Jordanelle Reservoir. They competed against out-of-state sailors, some of whom live in Denver, and all of whom train on Lake Dillon in Summit County, Colorado.

The 40 athletes found favorable weather at the venue where boys and girls competed against each other.

“Sailors ranging in skills from beginner to competitive racers enjoyed the weekend festivities. We are very excited about the event’s success and the camaraderie sailors showed on and off the water,” said Christian Koules, Junior Program Director for Sail Park City.

Three fleets competed:

  • Eight Lasers (three Full Rig, five Radial Rig)
  • 12 Teras
  • 15 Prams

Michele Bittle, a Sail Park City Board Member, asked Jack Ervin, a Park City athlete, about how he felt about his third-place finish. He said, “Thank you, this is my first regatta, and it’s really fun. I think I had a good experience doing it. The wind is pretty good when there was wind or when it wasn’t like too crazy, and I think it was overall a good experience. I think I did pretty well for my first race ever. I think sailing camp is also very good and has taught me a lot since my first year sailing Teras, so I am a little surprised by how decently I did at the race.”
