Spring Round the Bay      
Mattapoisett Yacht Club hosts the first major regatta of the boating season on Buzzard’s Bay. More than 30 boats from area yacht clubs are set to participate in the Annual Spring Round the Bay. This is a pursuit race open to all yachts with a current PHRF certificate.

One Design Tuesdays:
Ensign Fleet 76 one design racing night with spinnakers!

Wednesday Night Racing Series      

The most popular club activity is the Wednesday night race series, which attractes approximately 25-30 yachts a year. We hope to see at least that many racers again this year.

Trophies are awarded for the top three yachts in each class for each race, each series, and for the yachts with the best cumulative total for the season. The yachts are divided into four classes based on their handicap.

After each race there is a casual gathering at the club to announce results, award trophies and recount race highlights. The final race of the Wednesday night series is followed by pizza for all crewmembers and their families.

You do not need to have a large yacht and a big crew to get in on the Wednesday night action. Anybody with a one design “dinghy” can compete in Class D, which races under the Portsmouth handicap system. This is a unique system that allows boats of different one-design classes, such as Sunfish, Lasers, Beetle Cats or Herreshoff 12’s to compete against one another. Small boat sailors will find this to be an excellent entry-level racing format, with lots of room to maneuver, lots of advice from experienced sailors and challenging competition, regardless of your level of expertise.

Chowder Cup
Each year we take our rivalry with Angelica Yacht Club to the water and have a club vs club race day followed by a cook out. Boat choice and location is left up to the hosting club which switches back and forth each year.

Hurricane Cup
Open racing to all, come down and race on the Wednesday night after the end of the season for one last time! Just hail the committee boat to enter and be scored.

Fall Round the Bay      

As a complement to our Spring Round the Bay and as part of the MYC, Quissett and Beverly Yacht Clubs Fall Series, we have instituted the Fall Round the Bay Race.

MYC Boats Join Other Clubs      

In addition to races sponsored by the Mattapoisett Yacht Club, MYC boats participate in major local races, such as the Figawi, the Marion to Bermuda Race, the Tower Race, the Buzzards Bay Regatta, the Quisset Round the Bay Race and the Beverly Yacht Club Hurricane Cup.
