IYAC Newport Cup- Saturday, July 2nd- J/80s and all!

(Newport, RI)- Come on down and join us all for the IYAC's annual Newport Cup.  A mad-dash around one of the world's more beautiful and challenging "Around Island Races"- Jamestown/ Conanicut Island in the middle of picturesque Narragansett Bay.

So far, looks like several J's will be sailing including J/22s, J/24s, J/105s and a fleet of J/80s.

Everyone and anything that floats is welcome, just make sure you have some kind of verifiable PHRF number that PHRF-NB knows about.  Last year a Shields just lost out to the mighty 90 ft RAMBLER by mere minutes for the overall Newport Cup Trophy.  Dust off the old sails, clean the bottom, fill-up the cooler and head down to the IYAC at 536 Thames St. for the 8:30 AM Skipper's Meeting on Saturday, July 2nd.  First start is 1100 hours!
