The Snowball Regatta, BLYC’s Annual Invitational Regatta, was first sailed in October, 1946. Sponsored by BLYC’s own Lightning Fleet #43, visiting skippers and crew sailed in boats provided by BLYC members. Over the years, the event has grown, and sometimes ebbed, and has included Lightning, Interlake, Thistle, Highlander, Raven, Laser, and PHRF/JAM handicapped fleets.
Sailed annually in October, the Snowball is the culminating event of the BLYC season and continues to attract champion sailors from around the region to participate.
