Change is in the air!  In this, the 82nd year of the Narragansett Bay Yachting Association, we are working to re-vitalize the racing we run on the bay.   There will be a full weekend of racing for big boats July 25-26 out of Newport.  This varied format will have one distance race and an evening party, followed the next day by windward-leeward races.  The format of the Club Challenge races will be changed to make it more attractive to all racers.  The racing will be September 20 near Half Way Rock.

Our program for Juniors remains strong as we host 9 individual regattas for Optis, Lasers and 420’s.  The season peaks with Junior Race Week in August. You can find details and links to all events in the drop down menus under Junior and PHRF titles.

The Board is also putting together a series of seminars and coaching clinics that will run through-out the year.   We are meeting with the officers of our member clubs to see how we can promote your events.  If you would like to schedule a meeting or have something you want to discuss, please get in touch with me.

As always, thanks to all our volunteers for past contributions and continued involvement. I look forward to seeing you all on the Bay!
