Racing Calendar 2020

Top Racing Events To Put on Your 2020 Calendar

This is NOT a complete Chesapeake Bay sailboat racing calendar, but rather a rough list to help you plan your schedule; it’s (mostly) based on larger big-boat regattas and ones in which SpinSheet will have a presence. This calendar is a work in progress, so check back as CBYRA cements its schedule. Send updates to [email protected].

The list below is for the mid- to upper Bay. Find the Southern Bay racing calendars North division here and South division here

If you seek dinghy racing events, it’s best to keep your eyes on individual club websites—for example, Severn Sailing Association will host events almost every weekend in season!
