HHSA Women's Regatta
Saturday, June 17, 2023
Herring Bay, Maryland

The 2023 HHSA Women's Regatta was another incredible day! Thanks to all the skippers and crews who came down to race and the support teams too.  

The regatta is one of the only events on the Chesapeake Bay that is for just women sailors.  It's a wonderful one day, three race regatta with all women skippers and crew.  Get your team together, get registered and we will see you out there.

Thie event is for experienced and novice racers.  Our mission for the day is that everyone steps up and does something they haven't done before.  Maybe you've raced but never skippered, maybe you're a cruiser and haven't raced.  This day is for all of you!

This space is the hub for all information about the event as well as regatta prep events.  Need some crew? Email us!  Want some more information? Email us!  In the meantime, get out and find all your great women sailing friends and get your team together.

The date for the 2024 HHSA Women's Regatta hasn't been finalized yet but is likely to be June for June 15, 2024. Pencil it in and watch this space when we get it on the CBYRA calendar.
