Both one-design and PHRF racing is scheduled every weekend from May through September each year. The season consists of 4 short series that are scored individually, and then the total scores are combined for the overall season championships.
Many other special events, as well as regional, national, and world-level regattas occur throughout the summer. For full schedule details, please refer to the MRA Schedule.
Daily awards: A yacht club logo glass is awarded to the winner of each MRA race in each fleet of two or more starters, during regular MRA series races. After racing is completed for the day, glasses may be picked up at the front desk of the sponsor yacht club (please refer to the MRA Schedule).
Series Awards: For each of the 4 MRA series a First Place Award will go to any fleet in which there were 5 or more registered boats. A Second Place Award will be presented to any fleet where there were 8 or more registered boats, and a Third Place Award will go to any fleet with 12 or more registered boats.
Season Awards: The First, Second, and Third Place Season Awards will match the breakdown for series prizes. In addition, a Fourth Place Season Award will be presented for fleets with more than 16 registered boats, and a Fifth Place Award will be presented for fleets with more than 20 registered boats.
Perpetual trophies: Perpetual trophies are awarded, where merited, and are based on criteria that are specific to each perpetual trophy. For a list of MRA perpetual trophies and past winners, please see the Perpetual Awards page.
At the conclusion of the racing season, series and seasonal awards are distributed to each Fleet's Captain. Each fleet is subsequently responsible for distributing awards to individual recipients - typically via an end of season gathering.
