Your online guide to sailing activites in and around Louisville, Kentucky


For the past years Kentuckiana sailors, such as yourself, have supported the River Cities Community Sailing Program , a non-profit organization that teaches children and adults to sail, through your participation in the 45th annual Captain's Quarters Regatta, October 6-8, 2017.

The regatta serves as a fundraiser for the Program. Its proceeds go toward providing scholarships for at-risk children, keeping fees reasonable and the purchase of new equipment. We would like to invite you to continue your support by participating in the Captain's Quarters Regatta.

The Captain's Quarters Regatta is one of the region's premier sailing events. Started in 1972 by Ennis Mahon, then owner of Captain's Quarters Restaurant, the regatta has become a fall tradition noted for warm camaraderie, good parties and hot competition.

Entry forms are available from this website. Use the "Registration" tab above to download the Notice of Race, Registration Packet and Sailing Instructions..
