Opera House Cup Regatta


Presented by

Blue Flag Partners

Date:

Sunday, August 18 in Nantucket Sound

First warning at 10:45am for 11:00am start

A pursuit race is planned. There will be a check-in boat stationed outside the Jetties at 9:00am and all competitors are requested to check in by the stern of the check-in boat prior to heading to the starting area.

Description:

Entry is open to wooden yachts with hull material of wood or wood-based cold molded with a minimum LOA of 24 feet. Yachts having any composite or carbon hull material may be eligible to compete in the Invitational Division. Spinnakers are not allowed.

The Opera House Cup uses the Classic Yacht Owners Association Divisions: Vintage, Classic, Modern Classic, and Spirit of Tradition. In addition, there may be One Design divisions, if there are 4 or more boats of the same class, such as Alerion, Concordia, 12 Metre, or Wianno Senior. There may also be a Schooner Division.

The Invitational Division is for historic or replica boats that do not have a wood or cold-molded hull, or are designated as Contemporary on their CRF rating certificate, or do not otherwise meet the OHC eligibility requirements but add to the spectacle of the regatta.

All registrants must have a 2024 CRF rating, which can be completed online at classicratingformula.com.

There will be an NCS 30th Anniversary Gala on Friday, August 16 at the Nantucket Hotel, the Classic Yacht Exhibition on Saturday, August 17 along Straight Wharf, a "Brewery Night" party at the Nantucket Yacht Club on August 17, and the OHC Awards Party on Sunday, August 18 at Jetties Beach. Social event tickets are available separately.

Fees:

Registration Fee: $450, which includes two event tickets and two drink tickets to the OHC Awards Party on August 18. $170 of your registration free is a tax-deductible charitable contribution to Nantucket Community Sailing.

Late Fee: $100 after August 7, which is a tax-deductible charitable contribution to Nantucket Community Sailing.

Awards Party:

Awards will be presented at the Opera House Cup Awards Party at Jetties Beach on Sunday, August 18. The party starts at 6:00pm and the awards ceremony will start at 7:30pm. Results will be posted online.
