North Cove Sailing and IGY Marinas are proud to present the inaugural NYC – Hamptons Race! This 100 NM + offshore race will begin right in NY Harbor and end at the historic Montauk lighthouse out in the Hamptons!
The race will feature an iconic start outside of Ellis Island as the fleet proceeds down the Hudson, under the Verrazano Bridge, and out into the open Atlantic Ocean. Crews will make the choice to go inshore or offshore as the fleet separates at night with a battle to the finish Saturday morning. The race is open to all boats 30-ft in length and above, so expect to see a mix of cruisers and racers in this new New York classic!
