Entry opens for Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race Regatta

Published on July 1st, 2021

Applications are open for an invitation to the 2021 Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race Clinegatta on September 17-19 in Oyster Bay, NY. The event is hosted by The WaterFront Center and sailed in their three person Sonars.

Founded in 2016, The Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race event is a match racing event open to both adaptive and able-bodied sailors from the US and outside the US. At least the skipper should identify as having a disability.

The three day clinic and regatta will be coached by five time National Match Racing Champion, Dave Perry, along with Dave Dellenbaugh, a three time National Match Racing Champion.

After 2020 was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, 2021 will be the fifth year this clinic and regatta will be held. In 2019, Sarah Everhart Skeels (Little Compton, RI) and crew of Cindy Walker (Falmouth, MA) and Spencer Raggio (Malta, NY) took home the top prize.

“The Clagett Oakcliff Clinegatta is the only one of its kind in the world and the only place where disabled sailors can develop solid Match-Racing skills under the tutelage of the Dave’s in a competitive, safe and friendly environment,” commented Everhart Skeels.
