Spritfest Regatta This Weekend

The Fourth Annual Spritfest Regatta will be held this Saturday and Sunday June 5-6 in Noyac Bay, sponsored by Goslings Black Seal Rum, Tait Yachts and racing boat designers J-Boats.

This is the Long Island Championship for the J-109 Class, seven or eight of which will be competing. Many will also be at the North American Championships in Newport in July.

Among the competitors is “Gossip” owned by Greg Ames and Steve Kenny and based in Sag Harbor, which is the 2-time defending champion in the Spritfest J-109 Class.

Proceeds will fund the junior sailing program at the Breakwater Yacht Club.

A “Dark-n-Stormy” party at the BYC will follow Saturday’s race.
