TYC ran the annual Around Aquidneck Island Race and hosted a great post race party. New TYC member Tom Bodge provided the Committee Boat with club members Phyllis Ibbotson, daughter Tova, Tom Ryan and John Brady as crew.
Twenty four boats competed in four classes. TYC member Mike Zani won spinnaker B and TYC member Chuck Saccardo was third in Spinnaker A.
The post race party at TYC was a huge success due to most of the Board members cooking and serving under Lori Boivin's direction.
