Centerboard Regatta

The Centerboard Regatta kicks off the GMORA racing season with a friendly, casual racing atmosphere on the second Saturday in June each year.  The regatta format on odd years will be one long race starting off Portland's Eastern Promenade and sending boats out through the many islands of Southern Casco Bay.  On even years the Regatta is run in conjunction with the Atlantic Cup's Inshore racing.  On those years multiple short windward leeward races will be run.

Centerboard Yacht Club will host a post-race BBQ featuring pulled pork at the club on the Fore River with majestic views of the sunset and the Portland skyline.  Sit back and swap sea stories with your fellow competitors as you enjoy the BBQ and a Free Beer or Dark & Stormy while listening to music provided by a live band.  This is intended to be a family friendly event open to all CYC Members and Racers.  Racers please sign up at the link below, those only looking for dinner tickets please e-mail: race@centerboardyachtclub.org
