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.
