About Nantucket Race Week and the Opera House Cup

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 races provide sport for everyone from young dinghy sailors and families in the household knockabout to grand prix racers at the very top of their profession. The racing begins on Saturday, August 7, 2010 with events scheduled daily through Sunday, August 15, 2010.    For a detailed event listing, please visit the Schedule of Events.   Nantucket Race Week is proud to be a Clean Regatta as certified by Sailors for the Sea.

The Opera House Cup Regatta is a cherished tradition held on the third Sunday of August on Nantucket. The 38th Annual Opera House Cup Regatta will be Sunday, August 15, 2010.   The Opera House Cup Regatta was the first all-wooden, single-hulled classic boat regatta on the East Coast, and it attracts some of the finest sailboats in the country.    The Opera House Cup Regatta is proud to be a Clean Regatta as certified by Sailors for the Sea.

Nantucket Community Sailing is proud to welcome back the Opera House Cup title sponsor, the luxury Italian watch manufacturer, Panerai.   The OHC Regatta and Awards Party benefits Nantucket Community Sailing.
