August 16 – 19, 2017

The Latest from Chester Race Week

The 2017 Notice of Race and Registration are now available!  Find links on the sidebar or the Race Info page.

Our Chester Race Week committee has been working hard this year to make sure that Chester Race Week 2017 will be every bit as good a regatta as any of us remember.

Racing

Brian Todd and Dan Conrod will be the Co-Principal Race Officers for 2017. Brian will be Race Officer on the One Design Course, Ken Legler comes back to be Alpha Course Race Officer , Dan will be the Bravo Course Race Officer, Ollie Bone returns to the Charlie Course and new this year is a Delta Course with Trish Finlay as Race Officer. Find out more here.

Prize presentations will take place each evening for all classes as well as the exciting prize draws for great stuff from our sponsors.

On the Dock and Late Night

Three great food trucks will be on the grounds for all four days giving all lots of options for food.  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!

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!!
