In the interest of keeping sailors, supporters and volunteers safe and healthy, the board of the C.Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta has made the decision to postpone The Clagett due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. The C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta dates for the 18th Clagett Regatta are being rescheduled from June 16-21 to September 1-6, 2020.

"As a result of the current situation with the COVID -19 and after consultation with the Clagett board and the host facility at Sail Newport, we are moving the dates for the 18th Clagett Regatta from June 16-21 to September 1-6, 2020. We will have the same star studded coaching team and hope that sailors will be able to join us in Newport in September. We ask sailors to watch for updates on the Clagett website and social media. We are sorry if our new dates interfere with regattas scheduled elsewhere, but our new dates were the only ones open in the busy Newport sailing calendar," said Clagett President and Co-Founder Judy Clagett McLennan (Portsmouth, R.I.).

The 18th Clagett Regatta will have the 2.4mR class, the Martin 16 class and the Sonar class racing in the two day coaching clinic and three day regatta.

The Notice of Race and entry are available and sailors can find all the information for entry to the 2020 Clagett Regatta at clagettregatta.org/Information

About the C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta

Founded in 2003, the C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta honors the late Tom Clagett (1916-2001), a U.S. Navy World War II veteran who learned to sail on Chesapeake Bay. As a youngster he suffered temporary paralysis as the result of a bout of meningitis; an experience that left him with a deep respect for the accomplishments of people with disabilities. The Clagett's stated mission is " to provide sailors with disabilities the opportunity to improve their skills and reach personal goals through world-class coaching and competition," Tom Clagett's motto was "Reach for Success", which resonates with every Clagett participant. Clagett competitors have seen medal success at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Paralympic Games. Competitors often comment that, The Clagett, has improved their quality of life as they apply what is achieved on the water to everyday situations.

The Clagett organization would like to thank the following - The Horance A. Kimball & S. Ella Kimball Foundation at the Bronze level.
