Registration begins for Around the Island Race

Online registration has begun for the Around the Island race hosted by the Conanicut Yacht Club. The race, which is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 4, has been held annually for more than 80 years. Held on Labor Day weekend, it is one of the last major races held for the season on Narragansett Bay.

The race is open to all sailboats that have a Performance Handicap Racing Fleet of Narragansett Bay rating. Notice of race, sailing instructions, entry form and additional race and post-race party information will be posted on the club’s website.

In addition to registering online, race competitors, crew and friends can purchase tickets to the awards party, which includes cocktails and dinner prepared by the club’s new award-winning chef Chris Kaya, on the website. The post-race event will be held at the Conanicut Yacht Club on Bay View Drive following the race.

For more information, call John Mayers at 258-8791.
