The Long Island Yacht Club and The Great South Bay Cruising Club have resurrected this once annual event, with many of the local yacht clubs involved, and with an emphasis on promoting youth sailing.   Founded by the Long Island Yacht Club (LIYC) back in the 1980’s, The Mayor’s Cup Charity Regatta quickly became the Island’s largest attended race each season. In addition to its prestigious location, this race offered the largest class for boats that rarely raced.

After several successful years, the Race Committee unfortunately waned, the LIYC leadership changed, the club fell upon hard times, and the race was eventually discontinued. Now under new ownership for the past four years, LIYC is returning this prestigious race to its former glory and place among the top races on Long Island.
