A fun and elegant race around Oyster Bay and into Long Island Sound, the regatta, is expected to draw sailing enthusiasts from across the area.
Participants are invited to either enter their own classic yacht or race on one of Oakcliff’s classics. Proceeds from this event will benefit Mill Neck’s mission of serving people who are deaf and/or have other communication needs, locally, nationally and around the world.
Spectators are invited to watch the action aboard The WaterFront Center’s Christeen, the oldest oyster sloop in North America. A post-race party will be held at the Mill Neck Manor House, a spectacular Tudor Revival mansion in Mill Neck, NY.
