The "Can One Evening Race Association" is happy to offer a J/105 one-design start this season in their Thursday night series.

"Can One" is the largest weeknight racing fleet on Western Long Island Sound, with over 50 boats registered for the past three years. The 19-race series goes from early May to early September.

The fleet starts in the middle of the Sound at Can "1", which is 0.8 miles NE of Execution Rocks- a central congregation point for boats from New Rochelle, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, and Rye; some even come from as far away as City Island.

In the past, some boats have even come from the Long Island harbours of Glen Cove and Manhasset Bay.

In 2017, seven J/105s participated in a huge division of boats rating between 87-96 PHRF. This year there will be a J/105 one-design start and the hope is to attract even more J/105's.

"Can One" is open to all sailors from all across the spectrum of the compass rose- young/old, slow/fast, beginners/ experts, and not just yacht club members.

Thursday night racing is popular for many reasons, which include a limited time commitment, less intense courses, a chance to train new crew, capped off by watching the sun go down over the New York City skyline!

For more information, please contact J/105 owner Josh Burack who is a member of the Can One Board of Directors at email- .
