Competitors pass Block Island’s North Point Lighthouse during the regatta’s Around the Island Race. With an on-time start, the 52-boar Green Fleet made up of the Performance Cruising Divisions and Multihull fleets were fortunate to commence and complete their 18-mile counter-clockwise course. However, the rest of the competitors on the White and Blue circles entered into a postponement at 1100 due to the reduced visibility at their starting area caused by the fog. Cate Brown
