Nantucket Race Week
August 11 - August 19
Nantucket Race Week is an nine-day experience that marshals the entire Nantucket community together in a fun-filled week of regattas, awards ceremonies, and parties. The races provide sport for everyone from young dinghy sailors and families in the household one design to grand prix racers at the very top of their profession. The racing begins on Saturday, August 12, 2017 with events scheduled daily through Sunday, August 20, 2017. We welcome sailors of all levels to participate in our events, and want to extend a special thank you to our visiting teams — 12 Metre, IOD, PHRF, and classic wooden boats.
Nantucket Race Week is proud to be recognized as a Clean Regatta by Sailors for the Sea since 2009 and every year following has achieved gold-level certification. It is important that we and our participants do all we can to protect Nantucket’s pristine environment.
