The Opera House Cup was born one hot, summer night in July 1973; the place was the Opera House Restaurant, a fine-dining and drinks club on Nantucket Island. Owner Gwen Gaillard and manager Chick Walsh were sitting at a table on the patio watching the diners finish up as the Ship's Inn crew and other locals began to trickle in. The drinks flowed and discussion eventually came around to the sailors' main complaint; no one held a regatta for classic single-hulled wooden sailboats. "I'll provide the food, drinks, and winner's cup," Gwen said. "You guys go out and get the boats." That night the Opera House Cup Regatta was born.
