62nd Annual Edlu Distance Race

Published on May 13th, 2017

The 62nd Annual Edlu Distance Race attracted 59 entrants for what has long been a classic tune-up race for the around Block Island Race and Block Island Race Week. Hosted by Larchmont Yacht Club (Larchmont, NY) on May 13, spinnaker fleets were on a 32.2nm course and non-spinnaker on a 19.6nm course, with racing followed by a classic party to make it one of the must-do events on western Long Island Sound.

As reported on the UK Sailmakers Facebook page: “Larchmont Yacht Club ran its 32-mile Edlu Race in a strengthening nor’easter on Saturday. Of the 59 boats entered, 21 either retired or didn’t race because of the windy, cold and rainy conditions. The course was a 16-mile beat in to winds that built from 22 knots at the start to nearly 30 knots at the turning mark, where the fleet turned and had a fast dead downwind ride home. The faster boats finished before the winds built into the high 30s.”
