NBYC offers many opportunities for those interested in competitive sailboat racing. There is a Wed PM Series for PHRF, Atlantics, J-24s and Ensigns (no spinnakers). Weekend one-design racing includes Atlantics, Ensigns, Lightnings, Etchells, Lasers and J-24s. Additionally we run an annual PHRF Early Bird Regatta in June, a Junior Olympic Regatta in July (420, Optimist, Laser), Frostbiting (Blue Jays/Ensigns) in the fall and various regional and national regattas to support our one design fleets.
