Courses are approximately 65 miles long and will utilize government marks in Block Island Sound, Montauk, and Gardiners Bay areas. The starting area will be in the vicinity of Horseshoe Reef just west of Fishers Island Sound. The course to be sailed will be set by the race committee immediately prior to the start. Three sample courses are shown.


Free event T-Shirts for all Skippers and Crew. Shirts will be handed out by the race committee prior to the start of the race.

A shirt to be proud of – YOU HAVE TO SAIL IT TO WEAR IT!
