2019 Force 5 North American Championship

Fleet 105 and the Bloomington Yacht Club are pleased to host the 2019 Force 5 North American Championship in beautiful southern Indiana. The regatta will be held May 16-18, 2019. There will be welcome aboard activities on the prior days and a practice race on Wednesday, May 15. As always, you are welcome to come early and take in some of the charm of the area.


The racing will be sailed on Lake Lemon, home to sailors from Bloomington and the surrounding area. The region is a great place to vacation, so you could stretch your time here and find plenty to see and do. The weather in May is normally gorgeous and we intend to book that as best we can. The regatta is a bit earlier than usual in hopes of having better wind.

The regatta schedule and planning is still under construction, but we can tell you that Kim Schilke is handling the food. Those of you who have attended the Lake Lemon Regatta know how good that will be. There will be plenty of fun to be had as well.

Once we know details, we’ll post a Notice of Race and the Sailing Instructions. For now, you can make your plans and find your accommodations. Camping is available on club grounds. There are airbnb’s and VRBO’s in the area, so if you Google those and type in “Unionville, IN” or “Lake Lemon, IN”, you should find some options. The legendary Port Hole Inn is a ½ block away and they have a cabin for rent as well. Go to That will also get you close to the other options.

Make plans now to attend. We will look forward to having you at Lake Lemon!
