The traditional 105 nautical mile Category III New Bedford Yacht Club Whalers Race dates back to 1932. The race starts and finishes at Padanaram and includes marks at Cuttyhunk, Noman’s, Block Island and the Buzzards Bay Tower. All points of sailing are involved.
"Dreamcatcher", a Swan 48 S&S, owned by NBYC member Stephen Kylander won the Harvey Conover Memorial Overall Trophy at the 71st Block Island Race, hosted by the Strom Trysail Club. This award is presented to the boat that has won her class and, in the judgment of the Flag Officers and Race Committee, had the best overall performance.
Buzzards Bay has some of the best racing on the East Coast and NBYC is right in the middle of it. We hope that you will take advantage of the many racing opportunities.
