'Oldest Regatta in the U.S. Kicks-Off'
The Notice of Race for the 159th New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta was presented by Rolex today, which has been uploaded to yachtscoring.com.
Where it is now open for entry and registration, crew declarations and other event documents that will be posted as the event draws closer.
The entry is for the entire four days of racing. The Farr 40 Class will race the first two days (Thursday and Friday) on its own course on Narragansett Bay then join the rest of the NYYC boats on their course for the Saturday and Sunday races, and all races will count.
The New York Yacht Club is a spectacular venue and this event will provide a taste of what is in store for the Rolex World Championship in August. The social schedule includes cocktails after racing on the Saturday and a dinner Saturday evening. The dinner price is not included in the entry fee but tickets are available through June 10 on the on-line entry form, and at registration if the dinner is not sold out. On Sunday after racing the Rolex Awards Ceremony will take place at New York Yacht Club.
