Race Week

The Main Event

The highlight of the summer schedule is Marblehead Race Week, which was established in 1889. Race Week takes place during the last full week of July. In recent years the senior divisions have been incorporated into the Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series, adding a national flavor to this historic event. In conjunction with Junior Race Week, the racing typically attracts upwards of 200 boats. Sponsored by Helly Hansen, the Marblehead Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series (Race Week) is always held during the third full week of July. More information can be found on the Sailing World website.

Note: Your MRA membership includes the registration fee for Marblehead Race Week. However, a separate registration form (at no additional fee) will be required of racers that wish to compete in the Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series. This form is available via the Sailing World website prior to the regatta.
