Billed as one of the largest freshwater sailboat races in the country, each July the Youngstown Level Regatta attracts sailors from two nations to the water and Youngstown. Traditionally, nearly 60 percent of the sailors hail from Canada. Hosted by the Youngstown Yacht Club, the Regatta brings hundreds of boats to Lake Ontario for the two-day event. Five race courses are situated out on the lake. Approximately 300 sailboats representing many classes will race for prizes in their divisions.
