The twenty-third annual Merrick Team Race, one of Barnegat Bay’s most exciting junior sailing events, will be hosted by Bay Head Yacht Club on August 8th, 2019. Bay Head Yacht Club hosts this event which promotes team racing in Optimist Dinghies and Club 420’s. This year we will hold a one day event with a full day of team racing. The Merrick team race recognizes the contributions of Bay Head’s sailing legend, Sam Merrick. For many years, Sam contributed to the education of Bay Head and Barnegat Bay junior sailors. The Merrick Team Race recognizes his contribution by emphasizing the ideals which Sam instilled in all Junior sailors: knowledge, team work and sportsmanship. Sam has influenced all of us who have raced on the Bay. Come sail in his regatta and join in the premier Optimist/Club 420 team racing event on Barnegat Bay.
