Welcome to Racing at the Beverly Yacht Club! This summer, we’re looking forward to continuing our long-standing reputation as a respected yachting organization, now in our 152nd year. From the Club’s first regatta in 1872 with ten catboats and a sloop, to all the racing we presently conduct, the friendly and competitive spirit among BYC sailors has endured from the start. We currently host weekly series races along with special events and regattas from the end of May into the fall each season. Whether you’re looking to compete in a PHRF racing or cruising class, or as part of a one-design fleet, BYC’s racing program has something for everyone. Contact BYC’s Race Chair at [email protected] for more information.
