All Racing

Listed below is Hyannis Yacht Club's active racing schedule for 2023, which starts in May and continues through September.

Racing at HYC is exciting!  Wednesday nights' Beer Can races have 20+ boats race every week.  Thursday nights have 20+ Lasers competing.  Weekends are fun with Figawi and other long-distance racing.  Our 420 Racing Team is racing all over the Northeast, competing in local regattas.  We invite all to come and join us!  Volunteers and boats are welcome and encouraged!  Fun is had by all!  Don't miss out!  For more information, see the racing pages below, or email  

This area of the site is open to the public as are all the racing events we hold at the club.

Racing is governed by the US Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing. Every boat skipper needs to hold a current US Sailing membership.

Our racing area, Nantucket Sound, is blessed with steady sea breezes, interesting and challenging navigation, and was named by Sailing World Magazine as one of the top ten best places to sail in the US. Go to the PHRF Ocean Class racing page for more information.
