New Orleans’ West End is nearly fully back online with many new and returning bars and restaurants and coupled with New Orleans Yacht Club and the nearby Southern Yacht Club – West End is the ideal location for a regatta of this size and magnitude.

There are a multitude of options to choose from in New Orleans for this regatta and no accommodation is further than a $16 cab ride away from the venue! This city offers something to fit anyone’s budget from 5 star hotels down to the healthiest collegiate sailor couch surfing. RV’s onsite at the racing venue can even be arranged!

Mardi Gras Race Week is proud through our partner, the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, to offer reduced block rates at our three regatta HQ hotels! Be sure to mention that you are part of the Mardi Gras Race Week!

Downtown & French Quarter Hotels (For the true New Orleans experience – $16 cab fare from venue)

Metairie Hotels (Suburbia, but a bit closer to the yacht club)


There will be limited “college style” free housing for competitors. Those interested should contact Macho Slavich by email: broachin@msn.com or call NOYC directly at 504.283.2581     

RV parking is available and interested racers should contact Troy at troyag [at] hotmail [dot] com.
