New York Architects Regatta

The New York Architects’ Regatta Challenge is an annual sailing regatta held at HRCS during the early fall season. The challenge enables New York Architecture and Design practitioners to support the efforts of charitable enterprises focused on providing waterfront access and educational experiences to a wider audience of various socioeconomic backgrounds. The regatta is a friendly competition that provides competitors and spectators an exhilarating experience of New York and the Harbor from an exciting point of view. Part of the proceeds from the regatta support HRCS youth development programs.
