The LTYC Women’s Regatta
for the
Diane Chapin Nilstoft Memorial Trophy

The 2021 event is postponed at this time.  Stay tuned.

Two Divisions: Keelboat (4 sailors) & Dinghy (2 sailors)

The weather was perfect for the 2019 Women’s Regatta. 8 Alerions and 9 Dinghies raced three races each in two fleets before returning to the club for champagne, dinner, a fabulous cake, and awards.

2019’s victors were sisters Kate and Meredith Moran in the dinghy division and, in the keelboat division, Britt Gustafson, Kris Kalapos, Ali Hill (not pictured), and Ella Cantera (not pictured). The 2019 Nilstoft Scholarship was awarded to Natalie Simmons.  Congratulations to the entire Women’s Regatta committee, led by Jan Mancinelli, for planning an elegant event cherished by all ages.
