The 77th annual Storm Trysail Club Block Island Race took place starting May 24 in beautiful sailing conditions interspersed with frustrating doldrums and even a dry squall. Described by some as a race of “chutes and ladders,” the fleet of 76 boats embarked on the 186-nautical-mile journey on Friday afternoon under sunny skies in 5-10 knots. There were multiple restarts in the lighter conditions throughout the overnight race before 52 boats successfully completed the race by Sunday morning. Peter Becker and Adrien Blanc finished first in the J/105 for PHRF. Full results:
