Fleur de Lis Regatta

Regatta Schedule

The primary event for this fundraiser is the Fleur de Lis Regatta, kicking off on Friday night followed by two days of sailboat racing on the Ohio River near downtown Louisville, Kentucky. This location has been the mainstay for years and provides excellent viewing from under the tent on the Harbor Lawn, along with exciting challenges for racing because of the proximity of bridges and the downtown skyline. This is the only sailing event that is held at this location each year.
