The Thanksgiving Regatta in Lake Havasu is always a huge event which turns out many eager racers. Therefore, I would like to share some of the high points about the race with anyone who wants to get in on the fun and action.
When visiting Lake Havasu, you’ll soon find that no matter what time of year, there are always people on the water having tons of fun. So, November is no exception and a regatta is the perfect time to enjoy lots of action.
