Save the date for Block Island Race Week 2021

The following was forwarded to The Block Island Times from Storm Trysail Club on Monday, June 22:
While many races on the 2020 calendar have been canceled or are in doubt, we would all like to have something to look forward to. So with one year to go, we are announcing the dates of the always-eagerly-anticipated Storm Trysail Club Block Island Race Week. Next year will be the 29th edition of this world-renowned regatta, and it will be held June 21-25 in picturesque Block Island, Rhode Island.
Storm Trysail Club Rear Commodore and STC-BIRW Event Chair Ray Redniss is in the midst of ramping up the planning for the week-long event. “We anticipate over 125 boats with a wide array of designs. The yachts typically range from world-class Grand Prix teams all the way to families and friends racing and staying on aboard their cruisers, and everything in between. Courses will include the usual Windward-Leeward racing for the majority of the classes, but we will also offer Pursuit and ‘Solent-Style’ racing formats. These formats were very popular the last go-around, and we had a significant number of first-time entrants reflecting well on the health of the event.”
