Yellow Creek Messabout

(a fall, sailing festival)

Noon, Sunday 9/27

You are invited to a fall sailing festival at Yellow Creek State Park. Come join us for sailing, socializing and food. Beginning at noon, we expect sailors from University of Pittsburgh and Gannon University to join IUP for informal racing. We’ll have social sailing on FOYC boats and SUPs (stand-up paddle boards) for Friends members. But if you’re not a member, come join the festivities and find out about our sailing lessons and growing community sailing opportunities.

The Messabout is a relaxed alternative to the formal regatta. Bring your boat, if you have one … or hitch a ride with the friendly sailors at Yellow Creek. We’ll provide hotdogs, BBQ supplies and drinks. You’re welcome to bring your own favorite food to grill and share.

Yellow Creek Messabout is co-sponsored by Friends of Yellow Creek ( and the IUP Sailing Club (

The Yellow Creek sailing base is accessible via College Lodge Road off of Rt. 422. (Beach launching only at the sailing base; if you are bringing a trailerable boat, please launch from one of the park launch ramps on the north shore.) Email for more information.
