Despite the challenges imposed by the global health crisis, we believe we can all still go sailing. In fact, we believe we all NEED to go sailing, and HMM is happy to host a scaled-back version of our beloved classic yacht regatta on our normal weekend in August.

To comply with CDC and State and Local guidance, all registrations and waivers MUST be completed online, and any communications between the RO and competitors will take place via VHF and email.

The social program - if there is one - will be entirely optional and would likely feature a return to simpler times with a keg or two on the museum's waterfront (allowing for appropriate social distancing).

Entry fees are reduced to $5/ft of LOA which will include said low-key social program. If we are permitted to do something more involved - and there is an appetite for that - we will sell tickets for that separately.

Notice of Race and online entry can be found here.
