Inspired by their early experiences sailing and racing sailboats on Cape Cod, our founder board members created Community Racing, Inc.

Community Racing, Inc is an IRS recognized 501c3 with a mission of preservation and increasing access to sailing on Cape Cod.

In 2018, with the generous support of individual donors and corporate partners, Community Racing, Inc. purchased the former Lewis Bay Yacht Club in Yarmouth Massachusetts on Lewis Bay.  The goal is to keep this sailing hut as a place for sailors and sailboats. A base with instant water access.

Please consider joining us in the effort to serve our community by encouraging a love of Cape Cod’s maritime tradition.
