J/88 Wings sailing on Long Island Sound (Greenwich, CT)- From October 9th to 11th, the Indian Harbor YC will be hosting the inaugural J/88 New England Championship on western Long Island Sound.

Six boats are entered so far and rumor has it that more New York and New England boats are planning to attend.  Current Charleston and Block Island Race Week champion DEVIATION is registered and her owner/ skipper, Iris Vogel from New Rochelle, NY, are looking forward to the event.  In addition, another Block Island Race Week class winner, Mike Bruno, is sailing the new WINGS- a hot, new, J/88 with a black+red color scheme (seen here above)!  Mike’s crew from American YC will be looking forward to their first “trial by fire” against veteran 88 teams.  Attending from Newport will be Doug Newhouse’s YONDER and, furthermore, the new owner of 88 hull number “1” JAZZ, Doug Mckeige from Mamaroneck, NY, will also be looking forward to “go speed” tips around the track from fellow 88 sailors.  For registration and sailing information.
