Join in the fun at The Center for Wooden Boats’ 15th Norm Blanchard W.O.O.D. (Wooden Open & One Design) Regatta, honoring the best-known name in wooden boatbuilding and yachting in the Pacific Northwest. Norman C. Blanchard’s Blanchard Boat Company turned out more than 2,000 boats in 60+ years during the past century. Quality, performance, and longevity are the hallmarks of Norm Blanchard.
The Norm Blanchard W.O.O.D. Regatta is open to ALL wooden boats – from El Toros to large racer cruisers. We also welcome the non-wood versions of traditional wood one-designs (e.g., Lightnings). There will be a mandatory Skippers’ Meeting at 10am Saturday at the CWB Boathouse. Racing will start at 12pm on Saturday, and at 1pm on Sunday. This is a FUN regatta, so NO PROTESTS will be allowed. The last race of the day will start before 5pm on Saturday and before 4pm on Sunday.
