Around Long Island Regatta

NEW YORK, July 25th — New York Media Boat is at the start of the 2013 Around Long Island RegattaStrong wind and rough seas make for exiting conditions as 74 boats sail across the line passing the committee boat just north of Ambrose Light.

The non-spinaker boats start first, followed by the ones with kites, then the double handed group, multihulls, and finally the IRC fleet — all heading east on this first offshore leg towards Montauk Point.

You can follow some of the boats via the Kattack tracking system and check out a selection of photos on our ALIR page. Full-resolution images are available for purchase, inquire with sail number.
