2004 North American DN Championship

February 21, 2004 to February 24, 2004

Location

Sandusky
United States

The site was moved after several days of warm temperatures and rain made the safety of the ice at the primary site questionable. The regatta was relocated to another bay in Sandusky where the ice is always thicker and more stable. This new location in front of Cedar Point amusement park was the made famous in the "Welcome to Our Playground!" photo that graced the North American IDNIYRA website for many years. This site only has room for 3/4 mile courses, so the Race Committee divided the sailors into three fleets.

The ice was suitable, but little or no wind on Saturday and Sunday and soft ice due to the high temperatures made for a slow start to the regatta. By the end of the day on Monday, the Race Committee had managed four races in Gold, and three races each in Silver and Bronze fleets.

John Dennis sailed a consistent series sailing under difficult conditions to bring home a convincing victory.
