About NBYA

The Narragansett Bay Yachting Association (NBYA), is a collection of 30 yacht clubs, sailing associations, sailing organizations and individual members from around Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island.  As a member of the New England Yacht Racing Council and the Committee of Sailing Associations of US Sailing, NBYA is part of the governing body of sailing. The organization was established in 1938.

NBYA manages both Junior and Big Boat (PHRF, One-Design, etc.) events on the Bay, as well as special “ladder” events for US Sailing.  This effort, along with our Service Center and proximity to the US Sailing executive offices, makes NBYA unique.

NBYA is a tax exempt 501(c).3 organization, which allows your contributions to be tax deductible.  Please review our Mission and By-Laws, and contact any of our Officers or Committee members for more information.  Our objective is to encourage yachting in Narragansett Bay and adjacent waters.
