History of the Westpoint Regatta was started in 2009 by Westpoint Harbor and the Sequoia Yacht Club of Redwood City to bring recognition to recreational boating in the South San Francisco Bay. As one of four deep-water ports in the greater Bay area, Redwood City has a rich maritime history going back more than a century, and in Northern California, San Mateo County is the second largest home to recreational boats with 16,000 sail and power boats in total.
Today the race is both fun and challenging and attracts sailors from all around the Bay Area. This year we expect to see 100 boats and over 250 sailors out on the water. It is a spectacular sight seeing all the boats coming down the Bay.
