If you’ve been in Sheboygan for the 4th of July, there is a good chance you’ve seen the cardboard boat races on the Riverfront. You’ve seen the fabulous sinkings, the amazing designs, and those that have built boats on site with kits. In addition to cardboat boat races there is a paddle board relay race.
The Brotz Regatta is held annually in the last weekend of August, bringing Lightning sailors from the Midwest and the Country to Sheboygan for a weekend of Lightning Sailing. This regatta typically fields 12-18 teams and has been won by competitors such as Matt Burridge (2 time North American Champion), Dan Moriarty (World champion, 2 time North American Champion), and Todd Wake (North American Champion and SYC member). Aside from the sailing, the Brotz regatta boasts some of the best camaraderie in sailing; this is a fun event for club and community members alike.
