If you're NOT going to sail it ...

There is a small but constant amount of interest from folks in Colorado who would like to buy a Santana 20 locally. If you have one that you'd like to sell, email the particulars to the webmaster and I'll post it ASAP !

2020 Cherry Creek series

The Denver Sailing Association holds six series on Cherry Creek each summer. All are open to Santana 20s with the caveat that races run prior to paying DSA dues for the year will not count toward trophies and Santana 20s sailing in the 2 dinghy series may only use main and jib (no spinnaker, no genoa). (If you're counting, that's 50 days of racing, not counting regattas)

I always include one or two glaring errors on this page to keep you all on your toes. When you find one (or more) let me know and I'll fix it (or them). Please double-check EVERY event on that event's or organizer's website BEFORE packing up the boat, family, dog and mother-in-law...

It is not possible to test on all browser/operating system combinations. If you see something that doesn't work, please email the S20F28 Web Lackey! Thanks!!
