 7th annual New York Harbor Regatta & Bash

September 15, 2017

| $150 - $500

On Friday, September 15th, New York Harbor Foundation will host the 7th annual New York Harbor Regatta & Bash on Governors Island—an annual favorite among New Yorkers, closing the summer season. 
The event will offer a day of sailing on the water of the iconic harbor and waterways, followed by a celebration on historic Governors Island, hosted at the newly opened Island Oyster Bar. The festive bash will feature a DJ, open bar, oysters, and seasonal bites from local restaurants.
Before the bash, guests can watch the Regatta from a spectator cocktail cruise aboard the Manhattan II, a 100-foot long yacht with an all-glass observatory, intimate tables, and well-appointed bar. VIPs can board the Mariner III to taste food from a guest chef and experience live music while they view the race.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the New York Harbor Foundation, which supports programming for the students of New York Harbor School, NYC’s only public maritime high school with a student body that represents all five boroughs. The school offers a unique combination of traditional coursework and maritime career skills and technical training.
One of the school’s major initiatives is the Billion Oyster Project, an ecosystem restoration and education project aimed at restoring one billion live oysters to New York Harbor by 2035 (today, oysters are functionally extinct in the Harbor).
