During last week’s Storm Trysail Block Island Race Week, there were many local participants who performed well, including: Greg Slamowitz, aboard his J 111 Manitou, in the very competitive PERF1 class division; Mark Masiello on his Friendship 40 Tenderly in the performance cruising spinnaker class; Orrin Starr aboard the professionally-crewed Fox, an IRC 52; Kenn Fischburg aboard Agent 99, a brand new J 99 that was sailed by the Johnstone family.

Standouts include Tom Lee, taking top honors in the multi-hulled division aboard his Gunboat 55 Jammy; and Henry duPont aboard his Tripp 26 Rush, taking a first place in race three in the perfomance cruising spinnaker class.

James Gallacher, Block Island Yacht Club racing chair, served on the Race Committee.

“The Block Island Yacht Club is proud to be so well-represented in this major regional sailing event. Hats off the Storm Trysail Club for their excellent event management,” said duPont, Yacht Club Race Coordinator.
