2023 HYC Great Chase Race
Welcome to the 2023 HYC Great Chase Race Information page.

Saturday/Sunday, September 16-17, 2023

Qualifier in the Mass Bay Pursuit Race Series

*** Party on Saturday (4pm) and racing moved to Sunday ***

Come celebrate the sport of sailing by participating in the 33rd annual Great Chase Race.

How it works:

Each boat is given a start time window based on that boat’s rating. The slower boats start first, the faster boats start later. The slower boats have the thrill of hanging on to the lead for as long as possible. Faster boats have the challenge of passing the whole fleet to win. The first boats start at 1:00 PM.  
Boat start times are based on their speed potential as calculated from their handicap.
