2018-19 NYRA Winter Series Regatta (including the Halloween Regatta)Click here to register!


Begins October 27, 2018 with the Halloween Regatta

Hurricane Florence has been devastating to many NYRA member families and friends.  Blackbeard Sailing Club, Fairfield Harbour, and much of Eastern NC are still recovering and beginning the long process of rebuilding. The NYRA Board considered canceling this year’s Winter Series, understanding the difficulties facing many in our community.  After much reflection, we felt it important to offer a diversion to the work and rebuilding, to hold our series for all who are interested and able to get out on the water, and to encourage those who cannot sail to come out to the free socials held after racing each race day.

So – the 2018-19 NYRA WINTER SERIES IS STILL ON!!!!!



The NOR is available at the link above; All whose boats are able are encouraged to register to come out, even those who aren’t hard core racers, and to invite sailors whose boats were damaged by Florence to come along for the ride! Cruisers are welcome, and will have their own class; For those who are not able to sail – consider volunteering for Race Committee, or as a host for one of our socials – send us a note to if you are able to help out!

Fun and fellowship is the theme of this series – let’s come together and support our community and all who love sailing on the Neuse!

The social for the Halloween Regatta this weekend willl be hosted by Brian and Lauren Sears at their lovely home on the River, if weather allows; back up location in case of inclement weather is the home of Bill and Tinka Talbert on Spencer Ave.  Full details on location will be forthcoming as the week progresses.
