Affair: New York Architects' Regatta Challenge

When: Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 2:30PM

Hot Spot: Pier 66 Boathouse (inside Hudson River Park), NYC

Deets: Hudson River Community Sailing (HRCS), a leading charitable organization that develops leadership and academic success for underserved New York City youth through sailing education, will for the third consecutive year host the New York Architects’ Regatta Challenge on September 13-14 in Manhattan. With approximately 35 boats racing over two days, the event is considered the largest J-24 regatta on the Hudson River.

Held each September, the regatta enables New York-based architecture and design practitioners to support the efforts of charitable enterprises focused on providing waterfront access and educational experiences to a wider audience of various socioeconomic backgrounds.

Proceeds from the event will support HRCS’s Youth Development programs, including Sail Academy, a four-year program that uses sailing and boat-building to teach math, science, and leadership to high school students. Concepts are taught on land and water using small-group, experiential learning.

The 2017 New York Architects’ Regatta Challenge will take place at Pier 66 on the Hudson River (north of Chelsea Piers) at 2:30PM. Spectators can view the race from the shores of the Hudson River. At the conclusion of the regatta, sponsors, guests, and race participants are invited to a post-race party and award ceremony at the Pier 66 Maritime Bar & Grill.
