Four great food trucks will be on the grounds for all four days giving all lots of options for tasty eats, drinks, and hot coffee.  The Hopping Penguins will open and close Chester Race Week on Wednesday and Saturday! Party Boots will be on Thursday and on Friday we will have one of Atlantic Canada’s finest party bands Asia & NuGruv!

Clean Regatta

Clean Regatta | Sailors for the Sea | Certified Bronze 2016Chester Race Week earned a Bronze award last year from Sailors For the Sea – the world’s only sustainability certification for water-based events. Since the program’s inception in 2006, over 800 regattas, programs, rallies, sailing centers and cruises have registered as Clean Regattas.

Help us make this event a Clean Regatta by implementing some best practices with your team; provide re-usable water bottles instead of plastic, practice recycling and proper waste disposal during the event. For more helpful tips and information check out the Green Boating Guide for your go-to resource offering practical information on maintenance and running a boat in an efficient manner to help you save money and avoid costly environmental mistakes.

We want to see 140 boats on the water on August 16th.

Help us reach our target! Bring your friends!!
