The First Annual Harbor School Regatta brought more than 450 supporters participated as sailors, spectators and revelers at the Post-Regatta BASH, raising significant funds to support New York City’s only public high school dedicated to maritime and environmental education. We were thrilled to have 4 America’s Cup Charters 12 meters and 12 of Manhattan Sailing Club’s J24s competing in the Regatta. Team Burnham won the 12 meter class on American Eagle; Virgin Atlantic won the non-spinnaker J24 class and the US Merchant Marine Academy won the spinnaker J24 class. Winners received a first edition Harbor School burgee as their prize. During the race MSNBC’s Willie Geist, NBC TODAY Show host Savannah Guthrie and former Harbor School board Chair John Deermount entertained spectators on Manhattan and America 2.0 from the Classic Harbor Line’s fleet.
