Race for Ukraine Regatta

June 4, 2022

Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island

The Race for Ukraine was a great success, both on the water and with the money raised for this vital cause.  Heartfelt thanks to all who organized, participated and donated.  We have now raised over $20,000!!

A glassy start to the race in 2-4 knots was tough, but a slight breeze built, and by the time the boats rounded Beavertail, a beautiful Southerly brought them up the West Passage of the Bay with gusts of 18. Lots of spinnaker work that race!

An informal celebration followed at IYAC with pizzas and drinks for all.  The three 12 Metres were joined by 15 other boats using PHRF-NB ratings.  Famed photographer and offical 12 Metre Class photographer, Daniel Forster, donated his time to take these stunning photographs...
