Chester Race Week is North America’s 2nd largest keelboat regatta this year running from August 13 to 16 in the picturesque town of Chester, NS. Named one of Sailing World magazine’s 14 greatest sailing events in North America, each August, 1,200 plus sailors arrive in Mahone Bay on Nova Scotia’s scenic South Shore to compete in one of 15 fleets racing simultaneously on five different race courses. With an average of 140 fixedkeel sailboats of varying size and shape registered each year, Chester Race Week is North America’s second largest annual race week based on number of competing boats (South Carolina’s Charleston Race Week is largest with 288 boats in 2014).
