The third annual New York Harbor Regatta at Governors Island welcomed more than 700 supporters and raised nearly $300,000 for the New York Harbor Foundation.

The foundation will fund career and technical education; after school programs; college readiness and summer programs for New York Harbor School, New York City’s only public maritime high school.

Notable attendees included NBC’s Willie Geist, former pro Olympic sailor Hannah Swett and actress Gloria Reuben.
Corporate teams, passionate sailors, Harbor School students and NY notables competed on 30 boats in the America's Cup 12m, Farr 30, and J/24 classes. Winners took home a signature Chelsea Clock (1st place), NY Harbor Regatta Atlantis sweater (2nd place) and Soundview Millworks custom cutting board (3rd place).
