Similar to Solo/Twin, but reverse course and fully crewed. Start/finish out of Padenaram.
New Bedford Yacht Club’s Whaler’s Race is an open distance race event with courses set in the waters of Buzzards Bay, Vineyard Sound, Rhode Island Sound, and the open ocean waters surrounding Block Island.
Racing starts and finishes outside the breakwater of Padanaram harbor and traverses the bay towards Noman’s Island then heads west to sail around Block Island before returning to Buzzards Bay and the finish. Racers have the choice of short or long courses of either 73 or 105 nautical miles to suit the conditions or crew experience level.
