You are invited to the BNY Mellon Wealth Management - 49th Round the Island Regatta hosted by the Key Biscayne Yacht Club on November 28th 2015.

 Started in 1966, since 1994 the race has been held in memory of past Commodore of the Key Biscayne Yacht Club Ed Willman. The Round the Island Regatta is a fun, competitive event that engages sailboats of all sizes in a race from the waters of Biscayne Bay in front of the Key Biscayne Yacht Club, south through the Stiltsville featherbeds and past Cape Florida, north along the Atlantic coast of Key Biscayne, around a mark at the opening of Bear Cut at the north end of the island, and back to the Key Biscayne Yacht Club.

This regatta is certainly one of the most iconic races of the Miami sailing scene and for this year we are partnering with iconic brands to make it even more special.

 Following the race we hope you and your crew join us at the club for the award ceremony including a buffet dinner and party with live music sponsored by BNY Wealth Management.

What’s new: all the captains will receive embroidered polos, hat, bags and all participants will enjoy complimentary beer and Cider at the Stella Artois airstream stand during the party (7pm/9pm) while a band of steel drums will play in our sunset garden; Inflight solution is going to shoot the pictures, and HD videos of the event with their aerial drones, and Uber will give away $20 credit for transportation to and from the club on the day of the event. (New users only).

We look forward to you registering your boat and coming to sail with us at the round the Island regatta.
