We have two scheduled race series at Lake Pleasant in the spring and fall of each year, plus the annual Birthday Regatta in February. Small boats race Sunday afternoons at Tempe Town Lake, with races running nearly year-round. Race day start times vary by time of year so that racing ends near dusk.

Each Lake Pleasant series contains five race weekends and we normally get in five-six races each weekend, depending on wind. Races begin at 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays and at 9 a.m. on Sundays. See the calendar for schedules.

Lake Pleasant is less than one hour north of central Phoenix. If you’ve never been there, plan at least 90 minutes to get your boat ready, in the water, and all the way to the starting line. Here are directions to Lake Pleasant.

Tempe Town Lake Marina is plunked down in the middle of metro Phoenix, bordered on the north by Route 202.
