Registration is now closed for the 2015 Block Island Race Week (BIRW), the 50th anniversary of this iconic East Coast sailing regatta organized by the Storm Trysail Club. Race Week 2015 is scheduled for June 21-26 and includes multiple races per day, lots of shoreside activities, and a Round the Island Race. In addition, this year’s event includes several new initiatives, including new classes of boats that will be invited to race and an emphasis on youth and environmental awareness.
This year’s Race Week will introduce another first for the Storm Trysail Club. We will be moving towards making the regatta a more environmentally sustainable event. We will be following actions outlined in the Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas protocol.
