block party

Pimp This!

Come for the racing, stay for the partying! From 1965 thru today, The Storm Trysail Club has delivered the highlight of New England racing and this year will be no different. Put Block Island Race Week on your racing calendar for this June.

June 23-28 there will once again be great racing all over Block Island Sound. Who’s up for a new Rolex Submariner Timepiece?? Win the Around the Island, and it’s yours!! Off the water, it’s time to hit the tent at The Oar with Mount Gay and Heineken leading the way. See who makes the podium, tell stories that you might remember in 10 years, or get in on some corn hole toss, volleyball, jousting or badminton. This year’s Block Island Race Week, the 25th Anniversary edition will be fantastic – 180 boats and counting…your turn!

Week Of Big Championships: Bragging rights are on the line with the North Americans for IRC and J80s; East Coasts for PHRF, J44s, J105s, J109s and J29s; Swan 42 New England Championships. Besides traditional one design and handicap racing, Race Week includes navigator-style “Green Fleet” courses for Double Handers, Cruising (spinnaker and non-spinnaker) and Classic classes.

Don’t Miss It! You won’t want to be left on the beach during this summer’s best racing in New England! Last minute entries accepted. Green Fleet entries receive a 50% discount. Boats that sailed in the first race week in 1965 pay no entry fee! Ready to enter? Log on to the Block Island Race Week XXV page today on YachtScoring.com to get started. See you there!
