Regatta to include merchants


STONINGTON — The Connecticut Chapter FBI National Academy Association Regatta will be held Saturday off Stonington Borough. Racing starts at 3:30 p.m.

For the first time, borough merchants will race in their own division, making the sailing regatta more of a community event, according to Stonington Police Capt. Jerry Desmond.

Merchants competing for the division trophy include Dogwatch Café, Yellow House, Saltwater Farm Vineyards, Stonington Realty, Stonington Prudential Realty, Hungry Palette, and Hunter, Moore & Stearns.

“It gives them bragging rights for an entire year,” Desmond said of the trophy winner.

Desmond launched the races six years ago to raise money for local teens to participate in FBI-sponsored leadership training. He said 15 teens recently completed the course.

The regatta is sponsored by the Stonington Harbor Yacht Club and New England Science & Sailing which provide the skippers and a fleet of Ideal 18s and J-24s.

Connecticut police department members from Avon, Windsor Locks and South Windsor are among those participating.

A dinner at the Portuguese Holy Ghost Society will follow the race.
