The 44th Buzzards Bay Regatta presented by Mozzone Lumber featuring Marvin Windows and Doors, will be held August 5-7, 2016 at the Beverly Yacht Club in Marion, Massachusetts. Returning to the roots of the event when it was founded over 40 years ago, the 2016 Regatta will bring the focus back to adult racing on Buzzards Bay and competition in the boats that are raced by the local clubs.
The 2016 Buzzards Bay Regatta will serve as the J/24 Northeast Regional Championship and a tune-up regatta for the Ensign Nationals hosted by Mattapoisett Yacht Club the following weekend. Event registration includes launch/haul for the one design fleets and a mooring for the weekend for all classes. A late harbor start on Friday with racing extending into the evening should offer competitors the opportunity to experience the famous afternoon Buzzards Bay Sou’Westers and reduce the burden on skippers and crew to get the boat ready for the event.
The 2016 Race Officers for the event are as follows:
Spyder Fortier PHRF & Multihull Charlie Cooper One-Design Keelboat Matt Hill Bullseyes & H-12s
Event Registration opens on March 28th – register early and become part of the next era of Buzzards Bay Regatta.
