Race week schedule includes around the island race
As part of the New York Yacht Club’s Race Week at Newport, scheduled for July 14 through 23, there will be a distance race around Conanicut Island on July 19.
Sponsored by Rolex Race Week includes the North American championships for four one-design classes — Beneteau, First 36.7, J/44, J/109, and Farr 395 — and the National championships for two one-design classes — Farr 40 and Melges 32.
Competitors from all divisions will be eligible to participate in the Conanicut Island racing, which will be scored separately.
“Race Week at Newport takes advantage of two weekends and the
days in between, offering competitors an abundance of choices: handicap,
one-design, and distance, in modern or classic yachts,”said Steven Wolff, chairman of the NYYC’s Sailing Committee.
The New York Yacht Club Race Week at Newport has been sponsored by Rolex since Rolex 1994.
