The Lake Washington Sailing Club welcomes you to the 15th annual Dinghy Delta Ditch Race and Cruisers’ Rally from Rio Vista to Sacramento down the deep water shipping channel. This downwind drag race on a flood current pushes boats up-river to the LWSC clubhouse.

The course is approximately thirty miles long and will take an average dinghy about six hours to complete in light to normal conditions. After-race dinner, music, and awards will follow at the clubhouse.

The race is open to any centerboard sailboat or pre-approved keelboat. A limited number of large cruising boats are invited to anchor in the lake and a water taxi to shore is provided.

Our facilities include a clubhouse with large deck, restrooms, a launch ramp for up to 21-ft / 3500-lb boats, a two-acre boat storage yard, and a 2000-lb capacity hoist.
