Harbor Island Yacht Club hosts and competes in sailboat regattas
throughout the year in Nashville, Tennessee and across the
United States. HIYC host eleven regattas annually and three
series races. Regattas are synonymous with social events before
and after the race. Local participating clubs include
Vanderbilt Sailing Club,
Sailing Club and
Percy Priest Yacht Club.
Are you interested in entering your boat in our Regattas? Would you like to
learn how to race your sailboat? Would you like to crew while
learning the ends and outs of sailboat racing. We have some of
the best sailboat captains in the United States right here at
HIYC Nashville's Premier Sailboat Racing Club.
Our regatta chair persons will be happy to assist you with entry
forms, sailing instruction, race notification, crew and the all
important scheduled for social activities. Many of the major
regattas social events have live music, dinner and dancing.
