ROTON POINT
SAILING ASSOCIATION

 

The regatta is run by the Roton Point Sailing Association (RPSA), which oversees all boating activities, including rules, berthing assignments, races, and sailing instruction at Roton Point.

 

The RPSA was established in 1959 by Tony DiMauro, who served as Commodore for a remarkable 35 years. Tony became internationally famous for sponsoring the development of C-Class catamarans, which since 1961 have raced for the International Catamaran Challenge Trophy, popularly known as the "Little America's Cup." After Tony's Patient Lady III took the cup from Australia in 1977, he led four consecutive successful defenses of the "Little America's Cup" with a series of Patient Lady catamarans equipped with fixed wing sails, at the very cutting edge of small racing catamaran development.

At left, the Patient Lady III, with its fixed wing mast, passes Greens Ledge lighthouse in the 1970s.

“I love this regatta! The racing is competitive, the people are friendly, the location can't be beat! I'll keep coming back!”
