Conanicut Island sits in the middle of Narragansett Bay, and while several clubs and organizations host "around the island" races throughout the season, the Conanicut Yacht Club has possibly one of the longest running events. This year CYC celebrated their Labor Day Weekend with 10 different PHRF classes, drawing a crowd of 96 boats varying in sizes from J/24s to 60' cruisers.
A warm summer sun with a cooler autumn breeze, gentle ocean swell, a steady 10-12 knots, all added up to superb racing conditions for a holiday weekend. I was out on the photo boat for every start before jetting off to Beavertail Lighthouse to watch as many boats round the mark as I could! It was a terrific event and I couldn't be more grateful for the terrific people at CYC that organize and host this annual regatta. We're already thinking about ways to photograph more of the downwind spinnaker set for next year's race!
