Attention Gaffers! Today is the last day to register for the Moffett Race online, which means the 30th Pat West Gaff Rig and Schooner Race is nearly upon us! Race is held on Saturday, September 15th, and open to all gaff rigged boats 18’+. This annual race honors Francis “Pat” West, lover of the gaff rig, and benefits one of our favorite island non-profits, Sail Martha’s Vineyard, dedicated to teaching island children to sail, maritime preservation and education, and environmental/ecological/marine sustainability.

This year’s event will be “Zero Waste”, so please, no disposable plastic bottles, and bring your refillable water bottles with you!

To register for the Gaff, please email for forms, or register in person at the Skippers’ Meeting on Friday, September 14th, 5:00PM at Gannon & Benjamin’s waterfront shop.
