2017 Narragansett Bay Racing Season Outline

We will be racing in Bristol Harbor every Wednesday evening in Bristol Yacht Club’s Millard Series for 12 evenings beginning May 31st. In addition, there will be 3 weekend events. The Sea Sprite Regatta for SS23’s will again take place at Bristol YC Sunday this year on Sunday, July 16th.  On Saturday, September 9th, in early September we will have our yearly informal race around Hog Island followed by a cookout at the Marino’s home in Bristol.

Tthe Nancy Belle award will be based on which boat scores best in scheduled races including the Sea Sprite Regatta, ‘Round The Hog, and the Millard series. Other racing shall be considered as well. Specific guidelines will be promulgated before the season begins.


The MOHOSA on Sunday, July 30th, is a fun event sponsored by Bristol YC, Tiverton YC and Somerset. It is primarily a PHRF event held every year in the lower reaches of Mount Hope Bay with a start opposite Common Fence Point. This year it will be one of the SS23’s primary weekend races. If we get 5 or more SS23’s registered, we have been promised our own separate start. The post race party, always a blast with great food and company, will be held at location TBA.

Mark Rotsky is Chair of the event, and RC Chair at BYC. He can be reached through the BYC website below. Also, for registration directions, NOR, and S/I, go to the BYC website at this address:
