There’s no registration fee, no entry fee, no one will get a sunburn, and there will be no need to leave your house.  Join us for this online race as we weather this challenging time together.

A series of races will be held until we can all get back on the water. The first race on Sunday will be a race around Narragansett Bay using one design Farr 30s (made in Rhody by the way!).
