74th Annual Block Island Race
May 24 - May 26
First held in 1946, the Storm Trysail Club’s 186-nautical mile race from Stamford, CT around Block Island and back is a qualifier for the Northern Ocean Racing Trophy (IRC), the Double Handed Ocean Racing Trophy (IRC), the New England Lighthouse Series (PHRF), and the Gulf Stream Series (IRC), as well as the YRALIS Caper, Sagola and Windigo trophies and the ‘Tuna’ Trophy for the best combined IRC scores in the Edlu Race (40%) and Block Island Race (60%).
New for 2019 is a Plus One division, in which a boat’s crew limit is one more person than the 10s digit of the boat’s hull length. Under this formula, boats from 20 to 29.9 feet sail with a crew of three, boats from 30 to 39.9 feet sail with four, and so on.
