One distance race is scheduled per day with a goal of completing 100 miles for the weekend.


Like all “extreme” sailing events, the 100 has risks and suffered its first fatality last year when event Chairperson and Rockstar cat sailor Sandra Tartaglino was killed by powerboater.  Sandra, at 60, had been sailing the 100 for all 30 years and she was still at the top of her game having won BBR the week before the accident.  The 100 is a highlight for all who sail it, but Sandra loved the event so much that she was the key organizer and even recruited her parents to cook what has become a famous stuffie and chowder dinner every year.

This year we will honor her memory by turning up to sail and stuffing our faces faces at the cookout. Memorial donations may be made to the Sandra Tartaglino Memorial Fund c/o P.O. Box 491, Tiverton RI 02878


The goal is to competitive racing using all of Narragansett Bay to cover 100 miles in two days.


Courses each day will be between 10-50 miles depending on forecast conditions. Different courses may be specified for different classes depending on boat type/Portsmouth D-PN.


Courses will consist of rounding various islands and government or Race Committee (RC) marks & will require a waterproof chart of Narragansett Bay, upper Mt.Hope Bay, Sakonnet River & the ocean off Aquidneck Is.


We will attempt to make possible courses available no later than August 5, 2022. Additional course options may be added based on weather conditions or other factors. Final courses will be posted each morning of the event.
