ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - The Race Committees of the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club and the Sandy Hook Bay Catamaran Club will be holding the 30th Annual (since 1974) "Blue Water Regatta" on the waters of Sandy Hook Bay August 2nd and 3rd, 2014.

The BWR has become one of the most successful and well attended Regattas on the Bayshore with 46 sailboats last year (from beach cats to 43 foot mono-hulls) duke-ing it out in 6 separate classes over two days of fierce competition. The Blue Water Regatta is a Qualifier for the Performance Handicap Racing Formula - Mid Atlantic (PHRF-MA) Championship and is part of the Parkway Series for the J/24 One Design Fleet.  Other One Design Divisions may include J/105s and J/109s.  There will be a Cruising Class as well as PHRF Spinnaker and Non-Spinnaker Divisions.  All Divisions will receive Trophies.

After the Racing on Saturday, there will be a Beach Party at the SHBCC catered by Gianni's Italian Specialty Foods and an Awards Ceremony at the AHYC (above the Shore Casino) after the final Races on Sunday.

Sponsors of the BWR include:
