If you don't already know it, there are three Masters regattas coming up this Fall in and around Newport, RI
starting with the "New England Masters", Sept. 7-8 at Sail Newport, followed by the "Atlantic Coast Masters", Sept. 14-15 at the Barrington Y.C., and culminating with the "North American Masters", Oct. 18-20 at the New York Y.C.

The New England Masters, run for eight years out of Third Beach, will from now on be moved around in New England among its many fine yacht clubs and interesting venues. Sail Newport has stepped up to the plate this year and will endeavor to sail us on the same course area that the NYYC plans to use for the NA Masters.

The Atlantic Coast Masters will be sailed off the Barrington Town Beach, with only 500 yards to go to the race course. Check-in will take place on the beach, while all social functions will be at the Yacht Club.

The North American Masters will be the third Masters event at the NYYC, all in 10-year intervals. The first two attracted record participation: 97 at the US Masters in 1993, and 132 at the NA Masters in 2003. Going by this trend, we may just be looking at another participation record.

All three regattas have been listed (with their NORs) on the ILCA-NA and Laser D7 Regatta Schedules. They are here as well:

Please sign up early ….. and spread the word.
