Shennecossett Yacht Club to Hold New Lighthouse Regatta
April 16, 2014
The Shennecossett Yacht Club (SYC) of Groton, CT, will sponsor a unique sailing race on Saturday, August 2. Dubbed the SYC Lighthouse Regatta, it is an Eastern CT Sailing Association-sanctioned circuit race.
The plan is for 6 racing classes to take on a 14-mile race up and down Fishers Island Sound. The course will include 3 lighthouses—New London Ledge Light, North Dumpling and Latimer’s Reef—with views of several more lighthouses for an exciting navigator’s race.
The SYC will donate proceeds from the regatta to the New London Maritime Society Lighthouse Fund.
