Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race Week Set For June 18-23, 2017
Upwards of nine classes plan to host championship in conjunction with longstanding regatta
LARCHMONT, NY - The Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race Week, the granddaddy of the club's broad regatta portfolio, is scheduled June 18-23, 2017. Coinciding with the announcement is the launch of a new event website at blockislandraceweek.com, where links to register and the Notice of Race are available.
Founded in 1965 and heading for its 27th running, the Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race Week is a great biennial tradition of New England summers and one of the oldest race weeks in the U.S.
Racing on Block Island Sound in late June, as the season changes from spring to summer, often brings ideal conditions, with a gentle breeze in the morning building to a challenging seabreeze in the afternoon. Many who sailed the regatta in 2015 completed 11 races over five days, including a gearbustin' Around Block Island Race, amid some of the finest weather ever to grace the regatta.
THE CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE COMING!
Several classes have already indicated The Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race Week, to be held June 18-23, 2017, will be their regional, national, or even North American championships.
Stay tuned to this website for specific announcements in the next several weeks.
