Celebrating Sailing History: August 12th MerryMac Regatta

Our upcoming MerryMac Regatta will be held on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at Hilton State Park, Dover, NH. Over the years, GBYC has been working with local sailors to keep the spirit of the historic sailboat alive in the Great Bay area. Previous regattas have been held with much success. The regatta is also open to Oyster River Cats.

GBYC is located on Wentworth Terrace, Dover Point, NH at 43:124589, -70.8131513, a very short walk from Hilton Park. Registration officials will be at Hilton Park by noon and the Skippers Meeting will be held there at 1:30. The entry fee is $35. In addition to carrying on the tradition of a great Race Committee and support boats, entry includes a bountiful after-race cookout including a variety of beverages appropriate for the spirit of the day. Awards will be provided including the prestigious Wally Johnson Sportsmanship Award based on attitude, reaction to special situations during the regatta, or any other notable occurrence that expresses the high ideals of sportsmanship.
