One of the most popular pursuit races in New England returns in 2020!
August 8th, 2020
The 2020 Flip Flop Regatta is ON!!!! Please join us Saturday August 8th for one of the largest pursuit races of the year, starting in Broad Sound, around the Outer Harbor Islands and finishing in Boston Harbor. Registration details and NOR are now posted on www.regattaman.com .
Due to COVID-19, we will not be having a post-race party this year, but we will have an online awards ceremony on a date to be announced - stay tuned.
All proceeds support Courageous Sailing's youth programs and further our mission of transforming children's lives through sailing programs that inspire learning, personal growth, and leadership.
If your boat is racing, becoming a Skipper Sponsor is a great way to help Courageous by potentially doubling your contribution! If your employer has a matching gift program for qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, submit the receipt from your Sponsorship along with the completed sponsorship form (download from the information page) to your company. Details are on the entry page at Regattaman.
If you are not racing but would still like to donate to help Courageous, click here. Your donation will have a huge impact and help Courageous be there for the kids who need our programs more than ever in these difficult times.
Thanks for your continued support, and hope to see you on the race course August 8th.
