Sixth Dennis Conner International
Yacht Club Challenge

Message from Dennis Conner:

"Greetings! I invite you and your club to come to New York City and participate in the Sixth Dennis Conner International Yacht Club Challenge! The dates are August 15-17, 2014.

The purpose of this regatta is to promote international goodwill through friendly competition. There will be three days of racing and many social events.

This is a friendly regatta designed for amateur club sailors. We will provide the boats and all equipment. All you need to do is fly here with your sailing and social teams.

The regatta will be raced on J/24 sailboats in New York Harbor. The boats will be provided by Manhattan Sailing Club which is based at Dennis Conner’s North Cove in Lower Manhattan.

If you have ever dreamed about visiting New York City, here is a great opportunity! Bring your sailors, friends, spouses and family. You have a great time sailing near the Statue of Liberty and see the skyline of Manhattan. You’ll make new friends from yacht clubs from around the world and it will be a memorable and world-class experience.

I look forward to meeting you at the Dennis Conner International Yacht Club Challenge in August 2014!"
