New Bedford Junior Regatta

Saturday, July 7 and Sunday, July 8 2018


Registration is now open!

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. Additional parent information will be posted here in June and also emailed to registrants.

Spectrum Photo will once again be photographing the races. We will provide a link on this page to view and purchase photos during and after the regatta. Be sure to check back for those great shots of our young sailors in action.
