July 30-Aug 2 -- Hobie Wave North American Championships, (This is a combined IWCA and HCA regatta, all starting and racing together and scored separately). Put-in-Bay, OH, During the I-LYA Bayweek Regatta, PIBYC. "Deb Schaefer" <>
We are coming from Iowa/MN/SD and hope to bring 5-8 boats. Be awesome if we could get a 30-40 number for this regatta.

Comments by Rick:
Put-in-Bay is one awesome venue -- great fun on the water and tremendous fun on land. There is so much to do.., Perry's Monument, Wineries, Night Clubs with national entertainment, caves, great bars and restaurants, and the NAs are being held in conjunction with the I-LYA Bay Week Regatta, the largest fresh water regatta in the worlds since the mid 1800s. And they have a couple of parties per day.
And it is not just for Waves
There will be an open cat class on DPN or if there are 5 boats you can have your own class.
If you would like to take a tour of this beautiful island 5 miles offshore in Lake Erie, just click below

Be sure to head for town and not the lighthouse. Lots to see
