Buzzards Bay Regatta

August 2-4, 2019
Welcome Sailors!

The 47th annual Buzzards Bay Regatta will be held both at the New Bedford Yacht Club and at Beverly Yacht Club and will be the largest BBR ever.  It will feature fourteen handicap and one-design classes racing on seven circles.  The sailing on Buzzards Bay features the most reliable summertime breeze anywhere on the East Coast, and this combined with warm water, warm air and warm shoreside hospitality make BBR a not to be missed event.  BBR is the only multi-class event with kiteboards.  New to the event this year is the Melges 20 class.

We expect over 200 boats and 500 sailors!  Off the water there will be shore parties featuring live music all three days together with plenty of liquid refreshment.

Here's an overview of what's happening and where.
