A Different Experience Every Year

NEWPORT, R.I. (August 16, 2015) â€?The Ida Lewis Distance Race, a popular sailing overnighter hosted by Ida Lewis Yacht Club in Newport, R.I., wrapped up its 11th edition this weekend with the entire 36-boat fleet finishing within the time limit â€?a stark contrast to last year when many entries had to retire due to inclement weather conditions. The race started Friday (August 14) at 12:30 p.m. off Fort Adams, near the mouth of Newport Harbor, with a steady breeze and calm seas that remained consistent on two courses: the 153-nautical mile Block Island Course for the IRC Class and the 121-nautical mile Point Judith Course for PHRF and Doublehanded Classes. Brian Cunha’s (Newport, R.I.) Ker 55 Irie 2 crossed the finish line on Saturday morning at 5:50 a.m., claiming line honors and taking the overall win in PHRF division.
