Cock Island Race June 15, 2024

This year's Cock Island Race kicks off on Friday, June 14, with the Skippers' Meeting at 6:30 PM, followed by the Race on Saturday, June 15, at 9:00 A.M. (first warning horn, followed by the world famous Cock Island Party and Awards Ceremony.

Whether this is your first Race or your 35th (or more), the Cock Island Race is a legendary Southern Bay event. Once maxing out at 350 boats, the Race is a little smaller now but growing itself back to pre-COVID levels.

More about the History of the Cock Island Race here.

One thing that has not changed, however, is The Party. The folks at the Portsmouth Boat Club know how to throw a Party.

Check-in is from 4:00-8:00 P.M. at Tidewater Yacht Marina with the Skippers' Meeting at 6:30 P.M, Friday, June 14. As always, there will be beer, food and great Swag Bags at the check-in. Check-in is under the tent on shore between A and B Docks. As in prior years, Tidewater Yacht Marina is providing a generous 10% transient dockage discount for Cock Island Racers. Thank you Tidewater Yacht Marina! Contact the Race Committee for the coupon instructions and code.

 

Race Day, Saturday, starts with the traditional Continental Breakfast at 7:30 A.M. at Tidewater with the first warning horn for the Race at 9:00 A.M. off the northern end of the Portsmouth Seawall. We welcome PHRF A, B, C and N classes, a Cruising Class (non-spinnaker), a Schooner Class and a Catamaran Class.

More information can be found in the NOTICE OF RACE and in the SAILING INSTRUCTIONS.

The Race finishes at 3:00 P.M., whether or not you have finished, and then we go to The Party at the Portsmouth Boat Club from 4:00-9:00 P.M. Awards Ceremony at 6:00 P.M. Shuttles will run every 30 minutes from Tidewater Yacht to the Club.
