CYC Celebrates 90th Around the Island Race This Year
Conanicut Yacht Club’s popular Around the Island Race returns this coming Labor Day Weekend and will be celebrating its 90th Anniversary on Narragansett Bay. Scheduled for Sunday September 3, 2017, the annual event is one of the oldest ongoing sailboat races on Narragansett Bay, featuring a complete circumnavigation of Conanicut (Jamestown) Island. An end of summer tradition among many, the event welcomes competitors racing mono hull sailboats over 22 feet in length that are rated for PHRF-NB, and multihull one design classes by special request.
Organizers are expecting to ring in the extra special anniversary with 80-100 boats on the starting line. Following the race there is an awards party at Conanicut Yacht Club with great food and drink.
