New York YC 175th Regatta Preview

J/121 sailing off Newport, RI
(Newport, RI)- One hundred twenty yachts are entered in the New York YC’s 175th Anniversary Regatta.  Those entries range from classics to the most modern racing yachts and just about everything in between.  Multiple J/Crews are participating in the regatta that features racing taking place inside Narragansett Bay with “navigator-style” races around government buoys to the fanatical racers doing all windward-leewards offshore in a frenetic dance around the buoys.

In the IRC 2 Class are a duo of J/111s (Peter Wagner’s SKELETON KEY from San Francisco, CA and Andrew & Sedge Ward’s J/111 BRAVO from Long Island); Joe Brito’s J/121 INCOGNITO from Bristol, RI; a duet of J/44s (NYYC Commodore Bill Ketcham’s MAXINE and Amanda & June Kendrick’s PALANTIER 5); Paul Milo’s J/122 ORION; and Bob Salk’s J/109 PICANTE from Jamestown, RI.

In the PHRF Spinnaker Navigator class is a trio of J/105s (Bill Dana’s USA 63, Bruce Stone & Nicole Breault’s GOOD TRADE, and Theresa Brandner’s JINX MINX).  For more New York YC 175th Regatta sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
