Around LI Regatta Registration Opens
May 16, 2012
OysterBayEnterprisePilot: The Sea Cliff Yacht Club has announced dates and registration details for the 36th Annual Around Long Island Regatta (ALIR).
The summer classic sailboat race will begin on Thursday, July 26, and conclude by Sunday, July 30, with a beach party awards gala.
The ALIR combines the challenges of open ocean racing and the beauty of coastal cruising, setting a breathtaking 190-mile course from Brooklyn to Montauk, into Gardiners Bay and Long Island Sound. A workout for all the sailing skills, the race is a favorite of veteran racing captains trying to match the blistering 17-hour course record, and is also perfect for weekend cruisers who want to test the racing waters.
