The Harbor Challenge Team Race Series began as a series of 3-on-3 Team Racing matches between Boston YC, Corinthian YC, and Eastern YC. On Thursday evenings throughout the summer, two of the three teams would meet at the harbor entrance for a best of three team racing match up. In 2009, the series was modified such that all three teams race every Thursday, facing off in a summer-long series of round robins. Pleon YC was added to the field in 2014. The number of races sailed by each team over the course of the summer has grown to close to 20; colored mainsails were added in 2010; and Harbor Challenge is now the perfect event for those new to team racing to try this exciting racing format, as well as a chance for experienced team racers to get some practice in. Following racing each evening, the Eastern hosts a debrief, complete with free food and a chit bar.
The 2016 Harbor Challenge will feature 3v3 team racing with the possibility of spinnakers in use on designated evenings.
