Opera House Cup Regatta


Date:

Sunday, August 21 in Nantucket Sound

First start at 10:45am

A pursuit race is planned. There will be a check-in boat stationed outside the Jetties at 9:00am and all competitors are requesting to sail by the stern of the check-in boat prior to heading to the starting area.

Description:

Entry is open to wooden yachts with hull material of wood or wood-based cold molded with a minimum LOA of 24 feet. Yachts having any composite or carbon hull material may be eligible to compete in the Invitational Division. Spinnakers are not allowed.

The Opera House Cup is using the Classic Yacht Owners Association Divisions: Vintage, Classic, Modern Classic, and Spirit of Tradition. In addition, there may be One Design divisions, if there are 4 or more boats of the same class, such as Alerion, Concordia, 12 Metre, or Wianno Senior. There may also be a Schooner Division.

The Invitational Division is for historic or replica boats that do not have a wood or cold-molded hull, but add to the spectacle of the regatta.

All registrants must have a 2022 CRF rating, which can be completed online at classicratingformula.com.

There will be an informal Crew Dinner on Saturday, August 20 at the Great Harbor Yacht Club. Social event tickets will be available later.

Fees:

Registration Fee: $300, of which $200 is a tax-deductible charitable contribution to Nantucket Community Sailing

Discount Fee for 2021 Entrants: Boats who registered for the 2021 Opera House Cup Regatta are eligible for a $150 discount if they register prior to April 30.

Late Fee: $100 after August 10, which is a tax-deductible charitable contribution to Nantucket Community Sailing

Awards Party:

Awards will be presented at the 50th Opera House Cup Awards Party at Jetties Beach on Sunday, August 21. The party starts at 6:00pm and the awards ceremony will start at 7:00p. Results will be posted online.
