BLOCK ISLAND RACE WEEK 2019

Lay Day Done Right

Who said the lay day should be non-eventful? Not us. The Storm Trysail Club has decided to change things up this year, and proud partners Margaritaville, North Sails and New England Ropes jumped on board to help make this a lay day to remember. Keeping your physical and mental health in mind, our Storm TRYathalon is planned to engage your muscles and your brain.

Register below for one or all three of the events, or better yet, join as a team and take on the day for the ultimate team prize . And because we cherish Block Island, the suggested entry fee for all these events is the purchase of a BIRW raffle ticket. All proceeds of the raffle tickets go to support island services and charities.

 

Sailing shoes off and running shoes on, kick off the lay day with a morning 5K hosted by North Sails. Run solo, or with your TRYathalon team and get that morning run out of the way. Starting at 8:30am at the North Sails Service loft, located in the Block Island Maritime Institute, the route loops around and brings you to the finish line at the Narragansett Inn.

For those with a competitive streak, there will be North Sails Gear for the winners, ready to collect at the finish line – alongside some refreshments and snacks on North. The first 100 entrants will receive a North Sails hat, so don’t wait, register now.

You can tick off your morning exercise, now it’s time for Trivia. After you’ve showered and saw a bit of the island,  grab your team and head over to the Margaritavaill Tent at the Narragansett Inn at 1pm for the first ever Block Island Race Week Trivia, presented by Margaritaville. Questions will cover all things BIRW, Block Island, and your partners, so bring your A-Game.

 

Finally, pull your determined team together to fight it out in the New England Ropes Tug-O-War. Wander down to the beach by the regatta tent at the Narragansett Inn at 3:30pm and test the strength of your crew against the rest. Make your way to the finals and win the day.
