NBYA ‘Round the Bay Regatta
Saturday July 24th
The inaugural NBYA ‘Round the Bay Regatta — with an innovative and exciting new format — will debut July 24th. This is the first regatta that starts and finishes in every Narragansett Bay sailor’s back yard! There will be four different starting areas, so one will be within 20 minutes of your home port. The race will start simultaneously near East Greenwich, Barrington/Bristol, Wickford, and Newport, RI. You finish where you started after sailing through all the starting areas. All boats will sail the same 32-mile CRAZY EIGHT course. If you prefer, you can also choose from two 18-mile courses — one around Conanicut Island and one around Prudence Island. Awards will be given to boats from each starting area, plus overall awards for each course. And with the easing of COVID restrictions, all of the host yacht clubs are planning to hold post-regatta parties!
NBYA is using this inaugural regatta to raise awareness of our Presenting Sponsor Save The Bay and to highlight their efforts to protect and improve Narragansett Bay. Since 1970, Save The Bay and its members have worked diligently toward a vision of a fully swimmable, fishable, healthy Narragansett Bay, accessible to all.

Thanks also to our collaborating clubs — Barrington YC, Bristol YC, East Greenwich YC, Ida Lewis YC, IYAC and Wickford YC.
This regatta is sure to become a classic, so don’t miss the very first one.
