Polar Bear Regatta
59Th Annual

October 5 - 6, 2019

2019 Lake Davenport Sailing Club Polar Bear Regatta is CANCELLED due to high river current!!!


We're sorry to announce the CANCELLATION of the 2019 Polar Bear Regatta. The river is rising fast and so is the current. River level forecasts put the height way above anything we recommend for sailing. So unfortunately, we will be unable to sail safely in these conditions. Any pre-paid registrations or meal fees will be refunded.


Hope to see you next year.


Best regards,

Lake Davenport Sailing Club


Venue Lake Davenport Sailing Club, 1255 E River Drive Davenport, IA 52803
