crazy eight

Local Knowledge

Our sport needs more creativity when it comes to running races. Here’s a good example

The inaugural Narragansett Bay Yachting Association ‘Round the Bay Regatta –with an innovative and exciting new format – will debut Saturday, July 24. This is the first regatta that starts and finishes in every Narragansett Bay sailor’s back yard!

Why travel hours to get to and from the starting area for a race? You won’t have to if you come out for this one.
There will be four different starting areas, so one will be within 20 minutes of your home port. The race will start simultaneously near East Greenwich, Barrington/Bristol, Wickford, and Newport, RI.

You finish where you started after sailing through all the starting areas. All boats will sail the same 32-mile CRAZY EIGHT course. If you prefer, you can also choose from two 18-mile courses – one around Conanicut Island and one around Prudence Island. More here.
