North powered clients finish 1st in six divisions, wrapping up a fun and warm summer weekend in New England

A beautiful weekend in Newport, RI for the 163rd New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta where 131 boats from all over North America came to enjoy sights and sounds of Newport as well as experience the beautiful New England weather. The dying westerly presented interesting sailing conditions for Friday’s around the island race, which is roughly an 18-mile race that goes around Jamestown. As the sailors were closing in on their finish line, the westerly had completely dissipated and the southerly filled in, giving everyone a chance to feel the cool sea breeze. Because it was delayed, the race was very close to being over, so sailors had to maintain their sail combinations, carrying them through the next range.
Saturday was stadium style, which made for a great spectator day with fleets racing inside Narragansett Bay, and under the famous Newport Pell Bridge. Fantastic conditions, tough competition, and close quarters made for some great racing! Sunday’s racing for most classes was held offshore, also in sustainable wind conditions, creating the perfect ending to a weekend of pure sailing satisfaction.

Congratulations to our clients!
