Race across the basin in our famous "pumpkins", this year they'll be painted patriotically for our selected charities: Warrior Sailing Program, ABSAR and Sea Mercy. Cost is $25/person and each team should have 4-5 members.

There will be several raffle items and an award given to the team with the FASTEST time! Raffle drawing will take place around 6pm, you do not need to be present to win.

Please submit team entries to the Newport Shipyard Dock Office or sign up below by 1pm on Friday, September 29th. Food (Diego's Bodega) is hosted by the Shipyard and beverages hosted by yacht crews. Special guest: DJ Zack Young!

We will have a donation table at the event for anyone wanting to donate bedding, clothes, etc. (no food please) for those in need in the Caribbean. 

Patriotic attire is encouraged to show your support, we hope to see you there!


Limited edition 'Irma Relief Team' tees will be available for purchase at the Pumpkin Regatta for $30/each. Proceeds to go to ABSAR and Sea Mercy.
