Welcome, Sailors, to the 43rd Annual Buzzards Bay Regatta!
We are so excited to invite you to sail in Padanaram on August 7, 8 & 9, 2015!
Before you know it you’ll be experiencing Buzzards Bay’s exceptional sailing conditions and famous Southwest breeze, not to mention the spirited competition. Our committee has been hard at work this winter to get the details in place for another fantastic event. As always, our top priority is making sure that we have excellent race management so, of course, we have put together a great team of experienced Race Officers. Logistics are also so important and we promise that parking, transportation, launching and hauling, etc. will run smoothly. Please be sure to check back here for all of the details and updates.
What’s new this year? BBR 2015 is excited to be hosting 2 Championships and of course serve as part of the C420 Triple Crown. We will be hosting the US Sailing Multihull National Championship as well as the PHRF New England Championship. All are good reasons to join us on the water!
Thank you so much to the dedicated BBR 2015 Committee members who have been so creative, detail oriented, diligent and dedicated since last Fall. I would like to thank the 200+ volunteers who work so hard to make this event happen! And of course, where would we be without our sponsors? Without our sponsors and the all volunteer committee we could never run this regatta so cost effectively.
As always, please remember to be considerate of our neighbors during the event, as the New Bedford Yacht Club is in a residential neighborhood. Be mindful of the posted No parking around the club.
Finally, please take some time to thank our volunteers and sponsors when you see them for all of their hard work and support.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

Chairperson, BBR 2015
