RYC to Host 70th Annual Red Grant Regatta

July 9-10, 2016

Raritan Yacht Club is proud to host its 70th Annual Red Grant Regatta. This year's event benefits the U.S. Coast Guard Foundation and consists of two days of PHRF / one design racing and a cruising race on Saturday. Our lead sponsor again this year is Gosling’s.

The Red Grant Regatta has proven year after year to be the largest and most anticipated auxiliary sailboat regatta in the state of New Jersey and New York Harbor.

The Annual Red Grant Regatta was founded in honor of Adolph "Red" Grant, a local racer and veteran who lost his life in World War II at an early age. This prestigious event is a major part of Raritan Yacht Club's 150 year history.

A History Of Raritan Yacht Club

A History Of Raritan Yacht ClubThe Raritan Yacht Club, for sale one of the oldest in our nation, has a rich and colorful history. In pre and post Civil War years, Perth Amboy became a resort - fine hotels drew visitors for their summer vacations from Newark and New York. The bay full of deep, clear water and its access to the ocean made Perth Amboy a natural site for boating enthusiasts.
