2016 New York Architects’ Regatta Challenge: More Wind, Please

It was a splendid September day for the 15th annual Architects’ Regatta that set sail from its new mooring at Hudson River Community Sailing on Pier 66 in Hudson River Park at 26th Street. There was a slight problem: strong tides and practically no wind. The 20 lovely sailboats looked so small just bobbing around in the middle of the great Hudson River. A light breeze finally kicked up, and things got (slowly) underway – and a good time was had by (almost) all!

This year, the New York Architects’ Regatta Foundation raised $125,000+ for five river-based charities: SoundWaters; Sailing Foundation of New York; Hudson River Community Sailing; Rocking the Boat; and Riverkeeper.
