Our 7 Guinea Cup regattas are fun and casual races held inside the bay.  A member boat will be designated as the Race Committee and they will announce the course approximatley 30 minutes before the start.  There are two courses depending on a boats rating and desire to fly a spinnaker or not.  Boats take their own finish times and report them back to AMSS online.

This unique regatta starts down in south bay with the fleet anchored and the skippers ashore.  When the gun goes off it's a Le Mans style start down the beach and then out to the waiting boats who then pull up anchor and rig.  The fleet then races up to Shelter Island where the skipper is then dumped overboard and sent to the beach for his shot of rum to finish the race.
