New York’s First-Ever Gay Pride Regatta,
in New York Harbour. The Stonewall Regatta will feature up to 12 J/24
class boats in up to 7 races, as well as after-race festivities and other
events throughout the weekend. Make this your first day at New York’s
world famous Gay Pride Weekend.
Cowes, UK, - 30th-31st
As winners of the Eurocup Gay Regatta held in Holland in October last year, GUST (GAY UK Sailing Team) is hosting this event from 30-31st August at Cowes on the Isle of Wight - the centre of competitive sailing in the UK.
GUST are expecting teams from France, Germany,
Holland and the UK, and the event will be organised by the prestigious
Island Sailing Club using their fleet of 9 Sonar 4-man keelboats in spinnaker
and non-spinnaker classes.
"We're very pleased to be able to support these two events", said Paul White, President of GLORY. "The success of the regatta at the Gay Games in Sydney showed how popular sailing is amongst lesbians and gay people. It also demonstrated the high standard, commitment and enthusiasm amongst the participants and we expect this will be boosted by the opportunity to participate in these international events."
