The Philadelphia Cup Regatta returns on September 29 on the Delaware River with a series of one design races between the Betsy Ross and the Walt Whitman bridges, two of the city's most famous and picturesque bridges.
More than a dozen clubs are hosting the regatta along with the Independence Seaport Museum. The one-day regatta consists of eight class races: PHRF A, PHRF B, J-27, J-22, Laser, Sunfish, Lightning and Mariner. Trophies will be awarded to the winner in each fleet.
If you won’t be able to get on the water, the best place to watch these races is from the second floor balcony of the Independence Seaport Museum, which also happens to be where the awards ceremony and reception will take place at 5 p.m.
