1953 Tahoe Yacht Club Regatta

Lake Tahoe Championship


On August 16th Lake Tahoe Yacht Club staged a successful regatta for stock runabout. No records fell because of rough water, but there were plenty of entries in all classes and a crowd of about 10,000 people watched the races.

Morlan Visel of Los Angeles made an exhibition run in his Gold Cup hydro Hurricane IV.
