The Coral Bay Yacht Club on St. John’s east end hosts the 30th Annual Coral Bay Thanksgiving Regatta. Two days of great racing and two nights of fun parties with live music at Skinny Legs will once again provide exciting entertainment.
Serious PHRF racers, plus Gaff Riggers, Cruisers, Multi-Hulls, Single Handers, and Traditional boats compete. The Friday after Thanksgiving is when all the fun starts, and it continues through Saturday night in Coral Bay. On Saturday, the PHRF class will start together. All other classes will have staggered starts in a Pursuit Race. Boats’ handicap rating will determine their start time with the goal of most boats finishing together.
Skinny Legs Restaurant is the home of the Coral Bay Yacht Club, and the place to meet for Skipper’s Meetings, music, food, drink and the Awards Ceremony.
