NANTUCKET RACE WEEK: AUGUST 11-19, 2012
Nantucket Race Week is an eight-day experience that marshals the entire Nantucket community together in a fun-filled week of regattas, awards ceremonies, and parties. The week is hosted by Nantucket Yacht Club and Great Harbor Yacht Club to benefit Nantucket Community Sailing, and is the primary fund-raising event of the year for Nantucket Community Sailing. The races provide sport for everyone from young sailors in Optimists and 420s, families in their Nantucket one designs, owners of classic wooden sailboats, to grand prix racers at the top of their profession. The racing begins on Saturday, August 11th, with racing and social events daily through Sunday, August 19th. Nantucket Race Week is proud to be a Clean Regatta as certified by Sailors for the Sea.
