The Panerai Herreshoff Classic Yacht Regatta
Part 1 of the new Narragansett Bay Classic Yacht Rendezvous
August 24-25, 2017
The Herreshoff Classic Regatta is an annual event drawing participants from around the world. Classic yachts, many of them Herreshoff designs, gather for a weekend of racing and social events. Social Events are open to both Competitors & Spectators.
Schedule change for 2017: The Herreshoff Classic Yacht Regatta (HCYR) and the Newport Classic Yacht Regatta Presented by IYRS (NCYR) have been scheduled back-to-back creating a four-day celebration of classic yachts, both power and sail.
The HCYR will rendezvous on Thursday evening at the Herreshoff Marine Museum with racing on upper Narragansett Bay on Friday. The NCYR will kick off Saturday with a race from Bristol to Newport followed by racing on lower Narragansett Bay on Sunday.
Important Note: The Herreshoff Classic Yacht Regatta and the Newport Classic Yacht Regatta are separate events and require separate entries
