This prestigious regatta features South Shore children from Weymouth, Braintree, Quincy, Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, Scituate, Norwell, Hanover and other boating communities.

     During QBRWA's 80 year history, Race Week Activities and Events included the races, a parade a beauty pageant and rendezvous night. Over time these events have evolved in to the present day QBRWA activities. these include the Inside Lin Races for the Juniors and the Outside Line Racing events. Nothing has endured and been more meaningful than the Junior events. Both member children and nonmember participants are filled with the passion and the joy that comes from being involved with other youth in a competition requiring skill, camaraderie ad, knowledge and enthusiasm.

     QBRWA's monthly meetings are open to anyone who is interested in promoting boating/sailing and boating safety on the South Shore. Many just want to get involved in the Regatta.

WE ARE 8 CLUBS STRONG!

     Fund Raising Events Many of you ask, "why fundraising?". In the past the Year Book sales were essential to cover the cost of Race Week. During the past three years we have reduced the costs of producing the year book and have also eliminated the annual dues that each Yacht Club always paid for membership in QBRWA. Our organization is now able to sustain itself without adding additional financial burden to its member clubs.

     Our fundraising activities have now allowed QBRWA to offer a $750.00 scholarship each year to any child of a member of one of our eight participating Yacht Clubs.

     Rendezvous Night is an adult event fund raiser that is held annually on a Saturday Night following the race week. This function starts off with a dock party followed by dinner and entertainment. The participating Yacht Clubs provide host boats for the dock party.

Eight South Shore Yacht Clubs make up the Quincy Bay Race Week Association. Each club is represented by their Commodores and delegates.
