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.
