Race Committee

The Eastern Yacht Club Race Committee has a well-deserved reputation for running great races.

We are proud of our reputation, and of the folks who make it possible. The Eastern was named 2011 Yacht Club of the Year by MassBay Sailing for our race management work on national and local events including the J105 North American Championship, the Etchells North Americans, and the IOD Worlds.

Volunteering for Race Committee is a fantastic way to learn about race management, see top-notch sailing up-close, and contribute to the Club that you love. Head on over to the Race Committee Sign Up page for a wonderful, exciting day on the water.
