Bash to the Colonies

Bash to the Colonies Sailboat Regatta is a “friendly competition” between sailing enthusiasts. Trophies are awarded but the event is not a hardcore race. Over the years it has developed into a weekend of sailing, fun, food, music, and entertainment. All proceeds go to a local charity. All types of boats get on Lewis & Clark lake to watch, tag along, and simply enjoy the water for the weekend. There are many fun and exciting things to do throughout the weekend.
