NBYA Round-The-Bay Regatta sponsored by NBYA

The First Regatta That Starts and Finishes In Every Sailor’s Back Yard!
NBYA presents a great new race with an innovative format! Why travel hours to get to and from the starting area for a race? You won’t have to if you come out for this one. There will be four different starting areas so one will be within 20 minutes of your home port. The race will start simultaneously near Barrington/Bristol, East Greenwich, Newport and Wickford. You finish where you started after sailing through all the starting areas so all boats sail the same course of 30 ish miles. If you prefer there are two 18 mile courses, one around Conanicut and one around Prudence for you to choose from. You can even change which course you want to sail based on expected wind conditions the day before the race. How convenient is that? Awards for boats at each starting line plus overall awards for each course.
