The Conanicut Yacht club has run this race 93 times now. It is, for me one of the fun events in Narragansett Bay. Windward, Leeward courses are frankly a chore. The SW breeze filled nicely and made it all the more enjoyable.
With the winches electrified we are able to sail the boat with 5. instead of 12-15. We miss the weight on the rail upwind, which is worth about 1/2 knot. The joy of being on the water was unmatched.
This past week the NYYC hosted the 2019 Invitational Cup in Newport, RI. 20 amateur teams racing the new IC37 class (designed by Mark Mills) over 4 days on Narragansett bay.

PLENTY OF WIND OVER 3 DAYS OF RACING IN NARRGANSETT BAY DURING THE NEW YORK YACHT CLUB ANNUAL REGATTA
The final day of racing of the 161st annual regatta.
If you park near the sailing office you will walk by the lily pond at Harbour Court. It gives me no end of pleasure to see the daily changes. The New York Yacht Club has succeeded in making an environment that not only fulfills the need of access to the water for sailing but an exceedingly pleasant one as well. Spend an evening overlooking the harbour at sunset.
