Barnacle hosts Washington's Birthday Regatta

Follow in the wake of yacht designer and founder of the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club, Commodore Ralph Middleton Munroe, with boat races and a Chowder Party on Saturday, February 23 at The Barnacle. 

The 23rd Annual Washington’s Birthday Regatta honors the spirit of the first boat races held on Biscayne Bay in 1887 and is open to all vessels of traditional design regardless of construction. Skippers of mud hens, sea pearls, bullseyes, sharpies, Bahama dinghies, cat boats, etc. can register in advance for $50 per entry or for $75 on race day. 

Custom designs or other non-traditional modern designs are welcome and will be assigned to the Open Class Pursuit Race by the Race Committee. Please call the park at 305-442-6866 or visit TheBarnacle.org for a registration packet. 

Registration and a Skippers’ Breakfast begin at 10:00 am at The Barnacle, and the regatta starts at noon on Biscayne Bay. Sailors meet back at The Barnacle at 5:30 pm for the customary post-race Chowder Party where sailors trade tales of the day’s adventures and trophies are awarded to the winners in each division. Registered skippers and crews eat free, and non-sailing guests can join for $10 each.

The Barnacle is at 3485 Main Highway.
