55th Annual Finn Toilet Bowl Regatta

August 5 & 6, 2023

This great Finn regatta has been held for over 50 years at Willow Bank Yacht Club which is on Cazenovia Lake in the Finger Lakes area of New York State. This club has a nice fleet of Finns that have been active for many years. Bill Smith is the Finn Fleet Captain. I believe camping is allowed on Club property.  This event is known for both great sailing and as a social event.

Thames River Finn Championship

October 7, 2023

A group of TYC sailors started this event last year and have decided to continue it since we had a great time last year and now have established a TYC classic Finn fleet.  All of the Finns in the TYC Finn fleet are over forty years old and have been restored by their owners. This regatta will have up to six races on the Thames River with a mix of short and longer races.  Last year’s regatta was very competitive in classic Finns with two former Force 5 National champions competing with the famed Gus Miller who sailed Finns in the Olympics. While the racing was competitive, the fun was even greater as this is an informal and fun regatta. For more information, check the Thames Yacht Club website, or contact Dave Hemenway at
