Gaspee Weekend!
Take part at 11:00 in the Parade of Boats for the Gaspee Blessing of the Fleet.
Followed by some racing action-–the Gaspee Regatta!

Each year RIYC hosts the Gaspee Regatta on the weekend of the local celebration commemorating the the burning of the HMS Gaspee by colonist in 1772. The regatta is open to any area yacht with a valid PHRF certificate.

The 2017 Gaspee Regatta is dedicated to the memory of Mr. Donald Paton. Donald was a member of the RI Yacht Club from 2004 to 2015. He was a past Race Committee Chairman and Fleet Captain of the RI Yacht Club Education Foundation. While in these positions he gave many countless hours to improving our programs and sharing his love of the sport here at our club and with others on the bay. Donald was also a member of the Edgewood Yacht Club where he had many friends. He will be truly missed. Thank you.
