Spring Race to Kick Off 2018 Season!

We are just a few days away from our first race for the 2018 season! The NOR and SI are also available for download here: We have 40 boats currently registered for the Around Aquidneck Island race this Saturday. Please take a moment to review the preliminary scratch sheet. The scratch sheet will be finalized late Friday.

  • Are you in the correct class, or do you want to shift between Spinnaker & Cruising Class?
  • Is your PHRF value correct?
  • Did something come up and you are no longer racing that event?

Entrants should review and send corrections to

Competitors are requested to check in at the RC before their start Saturday. This was not explicitly mentioned in the SI, although the RC will be flying Lima.

Don’t forget that the Cuttyhunk Race is coming up fast on July 7th with a preliminary scratch sheet posted.

A big thank you to Quantum Sails for their continued support of our racing (and post racing!). I hope to see everyone at Tiverton Yacht Club following racing on Saturday.

Marcus Cochran,

Also, the agenda for Wednesday’s Annual Business Meeting is now posted posted at this link.   Please recall it will be held at the Newport Yacht Club beginning at 1900.  I encourage your attendance.

Two more AAC attempts yesterday October 20th

There were two more attempts yesterday, but neither boat could get around the course fast enough to unseat Tamanoa from the top spot.  Full results at this link

We have our second AAC rounding

Today, Gregg, Marcus and the Tamanoa team went around the island and set a solid corrected time of 3:43:41, enough to assume the mantle of “Fastest Rounding” so far this Fall.  Seems likely there will be more before the end of the year.  Please note that Gregg reports that the waterway under the Sakonnet bridge is still open, but closure looks to be scheduled for October 23rd.  This could change according to the demolition schedule.  Check with competent authority like DEM, the Tiverton Harbor Master or RIDOT if it might impact your AAC plans.  Full results are at this link.

We have our first Around Aquidneck Challenge result for 2017!

Yesterday, Thursday October 5th, Brooke Mastrorio and the URSA crew made a run at the challenge for 2017 — our first of the season.  Great job guys.  Please note that removal of the old Sakonnet bridge will potentially impact transits through that area Monday through Saturdays for a part of October and November.  Do check that against your planned circumnavigation.  Updated results are at this link.
