From the fun Around Southport Race to the annual Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club Regatta, we hope you will will come race with us this summer.
42nd Annual Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club Regatta
July 30-31, 2016
2016 marks the 42nd annual running of the Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club Regatta. The regatta is a premier event on the Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Association (GMORA) sailing circuit. The regatta hosts many different classes of competition from PHRF handicap racing to one design classes including Boothbay Harbor One-Designs, J24s, and J22s.
The BHYC Regatta attracts between thirty and sixty boats from all over Maine to race two full days in and around Boothbay Harbor. There are classes of competition for everyone including the hard core racer and the cruiser who want to compete in their first race. One-Design class racing is fun and often takes place in the inner bay with close competition and racing quarters. Racing classes often sail two to three windward leeward courses each day in Booth Bay with coastal islands such as Squirrel, Southport and Damariscove Island acting as picturesque backdrops and interesting geographical obstacles. Cruising classes sail one long race each day winding themselves through the many islands and guts along the Gulf of Maine.
Come for the racing, but don’t forget to join us for our famous Family Lobster Bake on Saturday night featuring live entertainment and fresh Maine Lobster! Come a day early and take advantage of Chef George’s popular Friday night specials that have made BHYC one of the premier family dining spots on the coast as well as one of the best sailing venues you will find anywhere! Moorings are available for the week between Southport Yacht Club's Seguin Island Trophy Race and the BHYC Regatta.
