Welcome to the Dale Jepsen One-Design Regatta
The Dale Jepsen One-Design (DJOD) regatta, formerly known as the Bellingham Bay One-Design Regatta, was renamed several years agp to honor Dale Jepsen, a former Bellingham Yacht Club Member, avid racer, Principle Race Officer (PRO), teacher and mentor. Dale’s favorite regatta to work as PRO was the DJOD, which features One-Design racing classes for dinghies such as the Opti, Laser, Taser, 29er, 505 and Hobie and F-18 catamarans. The DJOD has also served as a venue for several class Regional and North American Championships.
The regatta is typically held the second or third weekend in September each year and is a great way to wrap up the end of summer racing season. In order to compete as class, you need to have 5 boats registered for your class. Classes failing to reach this limit have typically been scored in a Portsmouth Handicap Class.
We look forward to having you join us for a some fun racing and après racing activities!
