Coffin Cup Regatta (ages 7-15)
November 12, 2019

Coffin Cup Regatta - July 17, 2020

Open to any participant of Polpis Harbor youth program sessions, the "Coffin Cup" is a mini regatta held annually in memory of Admiral Sir Isaac Coffin who founded the very first teaching/training vessel, Clio, for nautical studies in the United States. The regatta consists of a full morning of short races with an emphasis on sportsmanship and having fun. Participation is open to any student within the Whalers or Opti programs during the 2020 season, and students will compete in the boat they are currently learning in.

Parents, guardians, siblings, friends and Guppies are encouraged to attend the regatta to watch. Spectator boats are almost always available on a first come, first serve basis to enable parents and friends to get out on the water where the action is! As with all our programs, we ask that students wear appropriate shoes (closed toe) when participating in the Coffin Cup Regatta.
