NEMA Racers and friends: Take note that the Buzzards Bay Regatta early registration ends this coming Saturday July 17. After that date we are subject to a hefty late fee. So Skedaddle will be signing up this week. I have heard from at least three other skippers that they plan to enter--this is always a really good regatta and two years ago the racing was so close, it left chunks of fiberglass floating in the bay, and some great stories that get even better with time. Register at https://www.buzzardsbayregatta.com.
Also: North Sails has come through with swag for the Hot Dog Dash. There will be limited quantities so-- the swag will go to the earlier registrants. So sign up now. The race is Saturday July 24. Raft up on the beach at Vineyard Haven Friday 7/23. Register here at our Events page.
Another reminder: Registration for the New England Solo/Town (NEST) is open. The race starts July 30 at noon in Newport, and typically involves a long course from Newport Yacht Club, south around the bottom of Block Island, up to a mark off Gay Head, back up to the Buzzards Bay Tower, to Point Judith and finish off Castle Hill.
