Fayerweather Yacht Club, Housatonic Boat Club, Black Rock Yacht Club and Cedar Point Yacht Club will co-sponsor the Swim Across the Sound Sailing Regatta. The Regatta will take place on July 17 in the waters off BlackRockHarbor.
The regatta will consist of two races, spinnaker and cruising, with PHRF handicaps, as well as a fun event for sailors not wishing to race a course. These sailors will navigate a course on which each buoy will be a “clue” that crews will have to use to solve a puzzle.
All proceeds from the regatta will support the Swim Across the Sound-St. Vincent’s Foundation free mammography screening program. This is the sixth year for the regatta, and the entry fee has been maintained at $125. Following the regatta, a picnic will be held at Fayerweather Yacht Club for the crews of the participating boats. The cost for the picnic is included in the entry fee. www.swimacrossthe sound.org
