Registrations are now open and the the Notice of Race for The Storm Trysail Club's 25th Block Island Race Week has been posted on the event at Yacht Scoring at http://www.yachtscor...enu.cfm?eID=739. The Regatta Regulations can also be found on the regatta website.

The Storm Trysail Club is very excited about the 25th anniversary of one of the few remaining "true race weeks" left in North America. Several Classes have committed to North American and Regional Championships for this Silver Anniversary of Block Island Race Week.

Geez, I was there in '65 doing bow on a Cal 40. Drank my first Mount Gay. Got my first Mount Gay hat.

Damn I feel old.

(Of course, back then every skipper got a free bottle of Mount Gay in their goody bag. I graciously volunteered for the task of putting the bottles in the bags.)

Did my first in '73. We anchored about 100' off of Champlans. I must confess that I feel it has gotten way too big and that there are far too many people on what was once a lovely little island.

Doubt it, but 3 boats are committed, and another handful are talking. So we'll wind up in a PHRF fleet with the other orphans.

Still waiting for the insurance company to go look at the boat. She will probably be totaled but the plan is to fixed her over the winter and early spring or replaced her in time for BI with something similar.

Pretty sure I could get a ride on the Bird, but that would mean giving up Christmas vacation week in Charleston with the girls????


I can guarantee there will be more booze to be had on the Bird than in Charleston.

You have a little over a month to decide. We're going out mid-Feb to scout properties and there will need to be a deposit soon after. I think the rest of the crew is committed, just need to figure out who's going to be our mast man for the season since bucket boy will be gone.

Maybe 'muddie' is some kind of college slang for backwards bukaki and they arent even talking about drinks ?

I'll be in for the double handed if I can get a good place to stay. Planning on sleeping on the boat. Where do you all recommend docking?

Boat Basin looks like $144 per night! Sheet! That's expensive.

What marina would you recommend staying?

Has anyone stayed in the mooring field during the regatta? Did that work out? Did you find the water taxis were okay taking your drunk ass out to the boat after closing time?

All the marinas are about the same price. People have their favorite for various reasons. Mine is Paynes Dock. You can stay on a mooring. THe launch is expensive if you have a full crew, but if it is just two of you, it won't be bad at all. You should put the word out that two of you need a place to stay. Maybe there is a crew house with a couple of extra beds, that wouldn't mind sharing some cost with you.

By the way, in case you've been around for a while or have run into some old photos:

First Block Island Race Week Photos

We're looking for photos of the very first race week in 1965.

Check your old shoeboxes, albums or computer files for photographs, slides or film (8 mm, 16 mm, 35 mm or even Todd AO Panavision, we can use any format!).

If you have shots of other early race weeks, we'd like them too.

Contact Marcy Trenholm, stormtry@aol.com, 914-834-8857 with the details of your historic material.

Thank you.
