Drain the Basin July 19, 2014
The National Yacht Club has been hosting regattas since 1904. Over the years, we have continued to support world-class events, open regattas, poker runs and cruising events. This summer, we are rejuvenating The National Yacht Club Annual Regatta to create an inclusive event for The NYC racers, cruisers and powerboaters in one big event! The idea is that every boat in the club will get off the dock and drain the basin. We have invited our neighbours in the area too to join in the festivities!
The Drain the Basin Regatta will have both casual and competitive races, awards, a live band, BBQ and party – a little something for everyone. In essence, a community block party at The National Yacht Club.
Regatta by definition is about bringing boats together, so on July 19th let’s drain the basin and get every boat off the dock to enjoy friendly on-the-water competition with friends and family, then back to The National for a party!
