The Flip Flop Regatta is back for 2021!!!! FFR is one of the largest NE regattas of the year - a pursuit race starting in Broad Sound, around the Outer Islands and back to the finish in Boston Harbor. The race will be held in accordance with state and local health mandates.
A post-race party and awards ceremony will be held on Pier 4, featuring Sould of Boston and DJ Ryan Brown! Food and drinks will be available for purchase from Big Pig Barbeque. Please check back on this website, Courageous Sailing's website and Facebook pages for updates.
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 or your interested in supporting the event, becoming a 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 you or your crew would still like to donate to help Courageous, click here. Your participation and 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 on Saturday, August 7th.
