One of the most popular pursuit races in New England returns in 2022!
The Flip Flop Regatta is a fun and competitive race for all - one of the largest NE regattas of the season - a pursuit style race starting in Broad Sound, around the outer harbor islands and back to the finish in Boston Harbor!
Your entry fee and 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 you are unable to race but you or your crew would still like to support Courageous: Donate here
Due to the emergency repair work on Pier 4 taking place this summer, we won't be able to host our usual big bash, but we are trying to organize a post-race gathering elsewhere - please stay tuned for details.
Your participation and donation will help Courageous be there for the kids who need our programs more than ever in these difficult times, especially while our pier is being repaired.
Thanks for your continued support, and hope to see you on the race course Sat. August 6th!
