While the Torresen Marine boat yard has never really gone into hibernation this year, the launch season is upon us. Just down the road the Muskegon Yacht Club is quietly gearing up for its first regatta of the season.For over thirty years the Muskegon Yacht Club has put on a spring one-design regatta which started back in the days of 210’s. As the years have rolled off this regatta which began with the 210 class, moved through the J24 decades, and is now into the techy Melges 24’s and Audi Melges 20’s.Muskegon Lake has always provided an excellent venue for this type of yacht racing. With its flat water and spring thermals, the sailing is usually fast and exciting, all while only yards from the Muskegon Yacht Club and Torresen Marine Boat Yard. This year should be no different with an expected thirty boats or so. The club is open for all beginning with the Friday Night boat prep. The grills will be going and the beer will spill as hearty spring racers begin their season.
Come join the fun beginning Friday May 14th and running through the weekend. The shenanigans of boating are here for all to enjoy. Take a stop at The Torresen Marine Ship’s Store to see what is new this season, then head on over to the Yacht Club for a “public welcome” weekend.
