New Bedford Junior Regatta

Saturday, July 7 and Sunday, July 8 2018


New Bedford Yacht Club is pleased to welcome junior sailors, parents and coaches to NBYC for the 2018 NBJR on July 7th and 8th. This marks the 24th year of the regatta, which has become one of the most desirable youth regattas in our region. Past years have brought upwards of 170 boats and 250 sailors representing over 30 yacht clubs from around New England.

We invite 420, Optimist, Laser Radial, and O’pen Bic (new for 2018!) sailors to join us for an exciting weekend of racing on Buzzards Bay. We strive to run a safe, efficient, and fun regatta that draws young sailors back year after year.

Coaches and parents may begin dropping off boats on Thursday afternoon, July 5th. Volunteers will be available to provide direction on trailer parking and boat storage.

The Skippers Meeting will be at 9:00am on Saturday morning. Please see the parent and coach information link below for additional schedule details.

Spectrum Photo will once again photograph the races. Prints and digital files can be viewed and purchased here.
