The 87th Annual Around the Island Race

The oldest continuing yacht race on Narragansett Bay

The Around the Island race registration is now open

The Conanicut Yacht Club will host the 87th annual Around The Island Race on Sunday, August 31, 2014. This annual event is the historic capstone to summer racing on Narragansett Bay and the highlight of Labor Day Weekend for all competitors.

The popular race around Conanicut Island is open to all sailboats that have a PHRF-NB (Performance Handicap Racing Fleet of Narragansett Bay) rating. NOR/SIs, entry form and additional race and post-race party information are linked to the right. The Official Notice Board is also linked here. Please bookmark this page for all future race communications.

"Our annual race, not only the traditional circumnavigation sailing event, is designed to be a fun day for family and friends to compete and share the season’s stories and the camaraderie that is Narragansett Bay sailing. This year the race will again recognize the fastest corrected and uncorrected circumnavigation of Conanicut Island with our “open” awards. These awards, as well as the traditional class awards and post-race party, provide plenty of competition and fun." - John Mayers, Around the Island Race Organizing Committee Chairman

The post race party featuring cool libations, dinner prepared by CYC's own award winning Chef Chris Kaya and an awards ceremony will be held at CYC immediately following the race.

Registration for the Race is now closed. We look forward to seeing everyone on August 31st and extend our welcome to all the registered newcomers.
