Shields National Championship Regatta
September 28 – October 1, 2016
One of the great American vacation and sailing venues will host the 52nd Shields National Championship Regatta September 28 – October 1. Join us and see some of the finest “one design” sailors in North America in competition on the picturesque Monterey Bay.
Featuring three days of spirited “one design” yacht racing just off the Monterey coastline, Shields Nationals will crown its national class champion at the regatta. The event marks its third appearance in Monterey and the first time at this spectacular venue since 1984.
The National Regatta is hosted by Shields Class Fleets 7 & 12 and the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club. MPYC is well known for the club’s support and commitment to the Shields “one design” class and has produced Shields National Champions at the 1975 and 1984 regattas.
Widely considered the most beautiful meeting of land and sea, the Monterey Peninsula is a one of the most scenic and popular tourist destinations in the world. Offering “more than just sailing,” the Monterey area has something for everyone in the family.
