2005 Jazz Cup – Notice of Race

May 29th & 30th, 2005 

The Lake Washington Sailing Club (LWSC) is hosting the 2005 Annual Jazz Cup Regatta. This two-day weekend regatta will have great sailboat one-design and handicapped buoy racing by day and Dixieland jazz at night at the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee (See http://www.sacjazz.com for more information on the Jazz Jubilee).


Located in the Port of Sacramento, LWSC’s facilities include a clubhouse with a large covered deck, grass area with picnic tables, a launch ramp and an 800 lb. capacity hoist. It is your typical Sacramento delta clubhouse, full of good times, music, food, and good sailing. Normally the delta breeze blows from the SW at 10-15 miles per hour.
