Weekend Races

We have several variations of weekend races: The Commodore’s Cup,  the John Paul Jones Regatta, the Gosport Regatta and winter Frosties.

Many of these weekend races are run by Kittery Point Yacht Club with assistance by PSA. PSA and Star Island Corp run the Gosport Regatta as a fund raiser for both organizations. The last race of the Commodore’s Cup is run by Portsmouth Yacht Club and PSA.

Any PHRF ratable boat can join and you will need a current handicap certificate from PHRFNE.org. The fee for non-PSA members is $25 to cover the costs of what PHRFNE charges PSA. Once PSA receives your check or cash, we will send in the application for handicapping. Contact handicapper@sailpsa.org for the address to send the check to.
