New Bedford Yacht Club invites sailors from all points in Buzzards Bay, Mass Bay, Narragansett Bay and beyond to join us at the 48th annual Buzzards Bay Regatta. We are excited and proud to sustain this wonderful sailing event.
As you know, Buzzards Bay is known for its suburb wind conditions for great racing. Highly experienced PROs are committed to the event and collaborating to post the NOR in February. The PHRF and Multihull circle will kick off the weekend with the Dick Fontaine Distance Race on Friday. One of our priorities is to increase PHRF Race and Cruise participation by promising the usual outstanding race committee work, combined with efforts to accommodate logistical requests before and after the weekend. Since January, BBR committee members have been planning the waterfront and shore-side components in order to provide sailors with competitive racing, festive entertainment, food and drink.
The Laser Masters fleet has designated BBR as their 2020 Nationals, an endorsement of their satisfaction with suburb sailing conditions and the overall regatta experience at NBYC. The TF10 foiling trimarans are enthusiastic to return to the Bay, evidenced by the fact that they added the event to their calendar immediately after receiving the invite to participate. For the third year, the Round Hill Association welcomes the Kiteboards, giving these athletes the opportunity to launch and compete with the backdrop of this picturesque community. Returning one-design classes include 505s, F18s and Etchells.
Be sure to check out the three Kiteboard classes racing off Round Hill and the TF10 foiling trimarans on the PHRF circle.
By the time August 7 is here, the New Bedford Yacht Club will be ready and waiting to greet you as we present an unforgettable weekend full of fun, competition and camaraderie that only the sport of sailing can deliver. Blair Tracy 2020 BBR Chair
