The Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race is the year’s most highly anticipated adaptive needs sailor event. Five leading sailing organizations in the Northeast have combined efforts to offer the first-ever match racing regatta in the area to sailors with adaptive needs that has now become an annual event.
Participating sailors who are interested can get involved in two ways. Teams of three should try to form and register. The Skipper is required to have an adaptive need. The rest of the crew may have adaptive needs but it is not required. Individuals looking for a team can add their name to the crew bank and we will make this list available to skipper trying to complete their teams. It is recommended that teams form themselves.
Sailors who may need adaptive equipment should fill out the adaptive needs questionnaire below so we can provide it accordingly.
