May 1, 2022 – Registration is Open: Spring 2022 is upon us and the NCASA Board has been hard at work organizing our National Championship. Despite a number of challenges, we are ready to begin registering for the event. As in past years we are using the Yacht Scoring system for all of our online regatta information including the NOR, registration, notice board and scoring. You should be able to use your old login and stored data.
Your first stop in Green Lake will be the County Fairgrounds where you can unwrap and get ready for mast up. Then, launch and check-in will be just down the street at Deacon Mills Park. Launching can begin Thursday afternoon, June 23, 2022. Our Racing begins on Friday, and continues Saturday and Sunday morning. Plan on the first race warning gun at 1100 hours on Friday, June 24. The NOR and other pre-regatta communications provide detailed maps for the rigging and launch procedure to follow.
We are planning to have our usual banquet dinner one night and our after-race cocktails with heavy hors d’oeuvres the other night. Details are still being sorted out. So that everyone can enjoy themselves fully, we strongly recommend all participants continue to be vaccinated / boosted and follow CDC guidelines for safety and health. Anyone concerned about social activities should use their best judgement and opt-out if needed.
We should be seeing another new Melges A Scow on the starting line this year, adding to the four new boats that have been built the past couple of years. We are expecting great turn out for this year’s event, so PLEASE get your housing handled right now if you have not already done so,
A recent check of AirBNB and VRBO also show some homes available, so be sure to check those out as well.

The 38 foot (11.58 meter) Class A Scow is the largest, fastest, and most powerful inland scow sailboat. Originally designed in the late 1800’s by John O. Johnson of Johnson Boat Works (White Bear Lake, MN) the boat retains the same shape and size as the original boats. With the move to fiberglass and carbon construction, the addition of a bow sprit and a massive asymmetrical spinnaker, combined with a carbon fiber swept-spreader rig, the class is stronger than ever.
Today’s A Scow, produced by Melges Performance Sailboats of Zenda, WI, has all the modern, sophisticated rigging and gear (from the good folks at Harken) needed to make this unbelievable boat simply rock on the water. Powered by North Sails, able to pull water-skiers, and having been clocked at over 25 mph in a good blow, the A Scow is a worthy challenge for even the most experienced sailors. Unlike keelboats of this size, the A Scow uses only dual bilge boards for stability and thus requires a crew of 6 or 7 people to keep her upright in heavy air.
We hope you will explore our website and see what makes the A Scow so much fun!
