Now Accepting Applications for the Norm Blanchard W.O.O.D. Regatta!
Join in the fun at The Center for Wooden Boats’ 12th Annual Norm Blanchard W.O.O.D. (Wooden Open & One Design) Regatta, honoring the best known name in wooden boatbuilding and yachting in the Pacific Northwest.
The 2011 Norm Blanchard W.O.O.D. Regatta will be held Saturday, Sept 24 – Sunday, Sept 25 at CWB in Seattle.
Norman C. Blanchard’s Blanchard Boat Company turned out more than 2,000 boats in 60+ years during the past century. Quality, performance and longevity are the hallmarks of Norm Blanchard. Blanchard passed away on July 9, 2009. We hope to celebrate his life and legacy throughout the weekend.
The Norm Blanchard W.O.O.D. Regatta is open to ALL wooden sailboats – from El Toros to large racer cruisers. We also welcome this year’s Classic Plastic Fleet – the San Juans, a Northwest Classic.
