Thunderbird Fleet 2A Pacific NW Sailing Tradition

Seattle Thunderbird Fleet 2 is a member of the International Thunderbird Class Association (ITCA). The fleet consists of over 50 members with between 8 and 15 boats regularly participating in racing. We race every Wednesday evening out of the Leschi Marina on Lake Washington from April through September. The Fleet also participates in numerous other weekend regattas and long distance races both on the lake and on the sound, as well as a yearly regional regatta which rotates every other year between British Columbia and Washington State. We also participate every two years in the Thunderbird International Championships.

Given that the International Thunderbird World Championship will be held at Whidbey Island Race Week in July we are considering the Seattle NOOD as the venue for the Regional Championship.
