And in Local Racing News . . .

The weekend’s biggest race — and biggest party — wasn’t in New York, actually. It was right here in the Bay, with the 2019 Westpoint Regatta. We were, unfortunately, unable to attend or race in this year’s event, but principal race officer Russell Breed sent us a few photos from the committee boat.

We’ll have a full wrap-up of the Westpoint Regatta in the August issue of Latitude 38.

Money can do a lot of things, but it can’t change the weather. Sometimes, though, you have to wonder. The New York SailGP event, held this past weekend on the Hudson off lower Manhattan, managed to find a perfect weather window after a week of heavy rain and fog in the Northeast.
