2nd Annual Water Jubilee

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us to make the Second Annual Water Jubilee a great success! Thirty-one kayakers and paddleboarders participated in the Kayak Challenge, and six sailboats competed in the Nautilus Cup Regatta in honor of Heike Neumister, PhD.

Beatrice Weinberger finished first in the high performance group, with a time of 38:41  and Jonathan Trambert finished first of the community paddlers, with a time of 40:16. Andy Giaccon was the first paddleboarder to make it around the island with a time of 1:02:42. This is all the more amazing because he started the race nearly four minutes after the starting gun. Ellen Murphy and Roy Smith on J/24 Panic Attack won the Nautilus Cup with a corrected time of 33:59.   

Our volunteers were critical to the event’s success, and we couldn’t have done it without everyone who donated their time, expertise and materials to ensure everything ran smoothly. We’d also like to extend our appreciation to the Morris Yacht and Beach Club for allowing us to use their facilities and their hospitality and City Island Yacht Club for allowing us to use their course marks and borrow from their sailing instructions, and the Harlem Yacht Club for lending us equipment for Race Committee.

It’s never too early to start planning for next year, so if you have any thoughts on how we can make next year’s Water Jubilee even better, we’d love to hear from you!
