The Lake Sunapee Yacht Club and the Sunapee Star Fleet are honored to have been chosen to host the 2014 Western Hemisphere Championship.
This will be our second Silver Star event ranked second only to the World Championship. We have also hosted two Continental Star Junior Championships.
The Lake Sunapee Yacht Club was founded in 1902 and moved to its present site in 1925. Steeped in sailing tradition members obtained a Star Fleet Charter in 1939.
The Sunapee Fleet is proud of its Star history and the members that have had the opportunity to serve the Class: Frank Gordon as President, John Chiarella as International Secretary, Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore, District Secretary, Dexter Richards Continental vice Pres, Dave Cook District Secretary.
We take pride in the Lake Sunapee Open which brings together sailors from many districts for sailing and great parties.
The Championship week will begin on June 13Th and end June 20Th, many special events are planned to include a parade of the National Flags of the competitors. We expect Olympic and World Champions to participate.
This is a Yacht Club event and we hope all of our members will support this prestigious event.
