Black Rock Yacht Club in Black Rock, CT is hosting the 2014 Beneteau First 36.7 North American Championship September 18 - 21. At press time, 13 boats were officially registered and organizers are anticipating another five to eight boats. The regatta is supported by the First 36.7 Northeast Fleet Owners Association and the Beneteau 36.7 National Class Organization, and sponsored by North Sails and Prestige Yacht Sales.
North Sails will have a coaching boat on the racecourse to observe trim and rig tuning, and experts will debrief individual teams after each day’s racing. Prestige Yacht Sales, with locations in Norwalk, Essex and Mystic, CT, is a Beneteau dealer for the New York/New England region. “I recognize that putting on these events is not easy, and Black Rock Yacht Club is a true gem of a club,” said Tom Pilkington, a partner at Prestige. I’m more than happy to support the Beneteau owners and sailors in their National Championship.”
