Parade and Race Information & Results!

The 2023 Results can be found HERE (click)!

The Village Cup Regatta has two parts on the water for participating sailboats: A Memorial Parade of Boats, and a Race. The Parade runs from the outer harbor on the west side, south toward the town dock (next to the PJYC Docks), and across the waterfron heading east. The Parade Instructions will be posted by the Skippers Meeting. The Race is a 'For Fun' race where participating sailboats host guests from The Village of Port Jefferson and Mather Hospital as part of our Village Cup Charity Fundraiser. We STRONGLY discourage aggressive use of the sailing rules. See the 'General Instructions' for guidelines as well as the 'Sailing Instructions' which have mark locations, division times, etc. The race boats are divided into two teams, the 'Mather Hospital' and the 'Port Jeff Village' team. The winning team gets to take the trophy home to proudly display for the next year! The racing boats are also split into 3 divisions (groups). Each division is a group usually of 8 to 10 boats having the same starting time. This allows the boats plenty of room at the start. The divisions start 6 minutes apart to allow spacing.
