Block Island Race is postponed
Published on April 6th, 2020
The 75th edition of Storm Trysail Club’s Block Island Race on Long Island Sound, originally scheduled to start on May 22, has been postponed to June 19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This date became available when the 2020 Newport Bermuda Race was cancelled.
“We will, however, continue to monitor events and will make a final decision no later than May 15,” said STC in a statement. “If at that time it appears to be unwise to start on June 19, we will postpone the 75th running of the race until 2021. For now, we hope that this decision gives everyone who is missing racing something to look forward to. We urge all sailors to continue comply with local health and safety mandates.”
