Block Island Race Week
June 23, 2019 - June 28, 2019Map It
This iconic summer event is a great way to spend a week with friends, family, and fellow sailors. A 5-day event hosted by the Storm Trysail Club has made a few changes to the format this year and is inviting classics to join as well!
In addition to the Performance Cruising Division with one race a day around government marks (Navigators Courses), they are featuring a circle with “Solent Style” racing. This circle will go on one W/L race to start the day and finish with a second race around government marks. This format is meant to
a) echo the racing found at Cowes Week (the model for BIRW)
and b) get boats back to the Island in time to enjoy friends and family.
They are also bringing back the lay day which will be decided during the event based on the weather forecast.
