    • Fishers Island and Long Island Sounds

    The Off Soundings Club is promising that its spring racing series will resume this year after last year's Covid cancellation.  The SOS gives multihulls a start after all the monohulls have departed, so we chase the fleet and  try to  pass them all.  The 2021 spring series will be held in Fishers Island and Long Island Sounds. Registration is through http://offsoundings.org .  Take note that non-members in Off Soundings can race with NEMA Ratings but registration deadlines are shorter for non members.  Check registration opening dates on the Off Soundings website.

    Due to boarder Closure Between Canada & US the full event has been cancelled.

    They have indicated shorter races that don't cross the boarder might be planned around the same time. Check with the respective organizers.

    Contact: Boston Yacht Club & Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron

    Details: Start:11th of July - Distance Race: 352 nautical miles



    The starting sequence will have the slower-rated boats start first, thereby giving them one to two hours of added time to complete the course (all boats will sail the same course). In some cases some time will be added between starts so as to reduce the chance of faster boats overtaking slower boats until they’ve cleared the triangle component after the start. 


    The finishing line will return to its historic location of HB at the harbour entrance. Not only does this reduce the elapsed time required to sail the course, but it reduces interference between racing boats and commercial vessels.

     31st Black Dog Dash

    Raft up on beach. Prize ceremony after the race and big evening party with drinks and food.

    • Gulf of Maine

    The Monhegan Island Race that historically included three courses, will now be simplified and modified for a new era. Since 1928, the race has seen many modifications to fit the times and 2021 is no exception. One item that will always remain, is the tradition of sailing offshore in the Gulf of Maine while competing with some of the best sailors from around the world and beyond.

    There will be a multihull class so if you plan to be in the Maine area please consider entering this event.

    NOTE: This will not be a NEMA season point event however.
