New England Masters Championship (September 24-25th)

Hi Masters sailors,

Yes, there will be another NE Masters Championship and, yes, again off Third Beach in Newport, now for the 8th time at this venue, New England's best, which is why it was chosen for the last US Laser and Radial Olympic trials. The date is September 24-25. Directions and accommodation suggestions are shown on the NOR. 

Online pre-registration, unfortunately, is not available at this time. We are still working on it and will inform you when it is set up.  

There is a reason for the rather late onsite registration and commencement of racing on Saturday, and that is because of a triathlon that takes place that morning on the roads around Third Beach. Please do not arrive much before 10 a.m. at which time the roads should be open again.

And please notice that rig switching will be permitted throughout the regatta. There should be no reason not to sail. Of course, it is too early to predict the weather, but the summers are getting longer. We are optimistic.

See you soon, and please spread the word,

Peter Seidenberg
