S20 Class Association
2020 Class Championship
The Santana 20 Class Championship Regatta scheduled for July 15-19, 2020 on Ruedi Reservoir, Colorado, in conjunction with the Aspen Open Regatta has been postponed until a similar date in 2021 courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Aspen Yacht Club is located on Ruedi Reservoir ~18 miles east of Basalt, Colorado, up the valley of the Frying Pan River, a Gold Medal Trout Stream. (39.369677░, -106.789680░, 7800ft)
The Aspen Yacht Club maintains a marina, clubhouse, lawn and parking in a small side valley adjoining Ruedi reservoir. Traditionally, racers camp at the club, either in tents on the lawn or in camping vehicles scattered about. The club has outdoor cooking facilities that are available for individual use when not being used for the group. Sanitary facilities are trucked-in, maintained porta-potties. There is clean mountain water available from taps which is NOT considered safe for drinking. Ice is available for a nominal price. There is NO mobile service or wired telephone. There is a mast crane that is not capable of lifting a boat. Launching is done on their own ramp or at the government ramp down the lake. RV dump facilities exist at Mollie B campground downlake (~1.5 "bird" miles) and Chapman campground upcanyon (~10 "bird" miles). There is no guarantee of governmental priorities. Severe conservation of tankage suggested.
Yacht club limitations: ABSOLUTELY NO DOGS, RV length not to be greater than 25'
For those not wishing to camp at the club, the nearest motels are in Basalt. There are a small number of bed & breakfast type operations in the valley. The Forest Service has several campgrounds in the valley.
