167 th New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta


June 11-13, 2021

North America’s oldest annual regatta will feature three great days of racing including the separately scored Around-the-Island Race on Friday, June 11.  Competition will take place in ORC, PHRF and one-design classes, as well as for classic yachts and multihulls.

Harbor Court will be hosting a regatta dinner after each night of sailing, June 11, 12 and 13. The dinners will look and feel just like the traditional Saturday night regatta dinner of years past, just a bit smaller. Each entered boat is welcome to make a reservation for one of the three nights for up to 10 people. All attendees must be vaccinated and will be required to complete a Vaccination Attestation Form prior to arriving on property.  Click here to reserve dinner tickets.

The New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta was first run on July 17, 1845, on the Hudson River. Nine yachts started the 40-mile race with the 45-ton Cygnet winning with an elapsed time of 5 hour and 26 minutes. The race was run in or near New York City until 1988 when the purchase of Harbour Court in Newport, R.I., gave the Club a waterfront clubhouse from which to run all its regattas. The current format, featuring a round-the-island race on Friday and two days of buoy or navigator-course racing has been in place for more than a decade.
