Racing: 2014 Races & Regattas
BHYC enjoys a full and fun racing season. Summers in Maine are short, but we get the most out of it that we can. Most races and regattas sponsored by BHYC are open to both BHYC members and non-members. With so many options, you can find a regatta or race for any sailboat and racing class. We hope you will will come race with us this summer.
Summer Racing Series

- The Classic, an informal two-race series is intended for traditional, full-keel sailboat designs (whether old or new) and heavy cruising boats more than 25 years old.
