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.
Ryan Walsh, alongside fellow NBYC members Ike Babbit, Joey Mello and Sean McLauglin won their class at the 2016 Charleston Race Week.
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.
