Buzzards Bay Regatta
August 2-4, 2019
On behalf of the New Bedford Yacht Club and Beverly Yacht Club, I want to welcome you to a new era of the Buzzards Bay Regatta! After 45 years of alternating locations annually, we have decided to stage an event that spans the entire Bay, from the Cape Cod Canal, to Buzzards Tower!
2019 will feature spectacular racing out of both Beverly Yacht Club and New Bedford Yacht Club, with 13 fleets of boats on 7 circles, and yacht species that span from 20 ton cruising boats to foiling kiteboards. We expect over 200 boats and 1,000 sailors! Off the water, there will be tent festivities at both venues, with live music, food delights, and full-tilt regatta bars!
Here’s an overview of what’s happening where!

Since there’s a lot happening this year, please pay close attention as you navigate the website, read the race documents, and make your way through registration. We’ll do our best to respond to your questions quickly, help you through the process, and show you the best time you’ve ever had at a regatta! BBR will simply be the friendliest regatta in the World!
We look forward to hosting you and your crew!
