The Edlu 
63rd Annual Distance Race


May 12, 2018

For IRC and PHRF boats

With Double-handed, non-spinnaker, and one-design classes (e.g. J/44, J/109, J/105, Soverel 33, or J/88) will be established if  5 or more entries are received. 


The Edlu Race, first sailed in 1956, has long been a classic tune-up race for the around Block Island Race and Block Island Race Week.  Followed by a classic party, it is one the must-do events on western Long Island Sound.
The spinnaker course is 32 m from the Larchmont Breakwater to Gong 11B off Eaton's Neck and back.  The non-spinnaker course is approximately 20 nm.

The start times are set for slower boats to start first and allow everyone back to LYC in time for the Sailors Welcome with lots of camaraderie, free hot dogs, chili, beer, dark ‘n’ stormies and live music included in the entry fee. Awards will be presented as soon as practicable after racing so that visiting boats have more time to return to their home clubs.

A "Club" class is available for those boats who do not have a valid certificate and would like a 1 time rating to race. This class is not eligible for any of the perpetual trophies

Moorings will be available on a first-come basis at no charge. Please contact Marine Facilities at the Larchmont Yacht Club for reservations at 914-468-7742.



LYC is utilizing Yacht Scoring for convenient online registration for the Edlu Race.
