OHC 50th Anniversary Gala
Please join us as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Opera House Cup Regatta
6:30 - midnight
The Gala evening begins with cocktails and a silent auction on the Breezeway of the Nantucket Hotel,
followed by a fabulous seated dinner, an incredible live auction of a few special items, and a
"Raise the Paddle" auction to support the Nantucket Community Sailing Youth Scholarship Endowment Fund.
All Sponsors will be recognized in the Gala program.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, Nantucket Community Sailing is thrilled to announce that the
Opera House Cup 50th Anniversary Gala is SOLD OUT!
All event costs have been met which means that additional proceeds will go directly to support
NCS's Youth Scholarship Endowment established in 2019.
There are still many ways to help celebrate the OHC 50th and support Nantucket Community Sailing, including the 50th OHC Awards Party under the Tent at Jetties Beach on Sunday August 21 from 6:00-10pm. Join us under the stars with your toes in the sand and drink in your hand, dancing to the Billy Blackstone/Brian Glowacki Band as we announce the winners of the 50th OHC Regatta.
Skippers, if you missed your chance to reserve a table at the Gala, you will have an opportunity to book a table for the OHC Awards Party in advance for your crew. Individual tickets will also be available.
And, don't miss these two spectacular events:
The Classic Yacht Exhibition on Saturday August 20 on the Straight Wharf Pier from 5:30pm - 7:30pm
The Wooden Boats and Rainbow Fleet Parade on Sunday August 21 viewed from Brant Point from 9am onward
Nantucket Community Sailing Thanks our Generous Donors For Supporting Youth Sailing and

Even if you cannot attend the Gala, please consider a contribution to the Youth Scholarship Endowment and help NCS fulfill its mission to connect the Nantucket community to the water.
