The City Island Yacht Club invites you to participate in its Friday Night TGIF Sunset Series, a jib-and-main race for sailors of all experience levels, starting in the vicinity of the “CL” mark in Eastchester Bay right outside the CIYC mooring fleet.

All boats are welcome from any yacht club, marina or mooring in the area.

The races in this series are designed to be fun, short, sunset races “‘round the Buoys” returning to City Island YC afterwards for awards & prizes, music and dancing, and great food and drink! Come and chill out, have some fun with us after a hard week at work!

Free! There is no entry fee!
