We're looking forward to welcoming the fleet to Bristol in two weeks! If you're not registered yet, here are some reasons to come:

  • We have dock space and moorings available.
  • Bristol Marine is providing launch service to and from the museum.
  • If your boat doesn't have an engine and the breeze dies, we'll tow you.
  • The entry fee is a low $5/foot of LOA.
What we're trying to do is eliminate reasons you might not come to the regatta (other than COVID-19 - we can't seem to get rid of that). Come check in with boats and friends you haven't seen in a while, and enjoy a nice tour of the upper bay courtesy of our new PRO John Mooney.

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.

Hope to see you on the 28th!
