Calling All Fools for August Regatta

Construction of the vessels for the annual Fools’ Rules Regatta begins on Saturday, Aug. 22 at 9 a.m. on the town beach at East Ferry in Jamestown.

Entrants are allowed two hours to construct a sailing craft on the beach, and the “boats” must be made of non-marine items only.

Vessels compete for first, second, and third place in each class. Classes are determined by the number of participants in each entry. Often, the Unlimited Class crewed by as many as a dozen or more, is the highlight of this free event.

For information, call 401-423- 1492 or visit jyc.org.
