Commodore Mike Bruno Passes The Robie Pierce regatta lost a great friend and supporter, with the sudden passing of Commodore Michael S. Bruno in August, 2019. Mike was Commodore of American Yacht Club when the club hosted the US Sailing Disabled Nationals in 2008. Shortly after the regatta, he was approached by members about establishing a permanent regatta for sailors with disabilities, to be hosted by American and Larchmont in alternate years. He embraced it immediately, and the Robie was born. Over the years, Mike was a great friend of the regatta. He is sorely missed.

The Women's event will take place on Friday and the Robie Open will be on Saturday and Sunday. Racing will be held at Larchmont Yacht Club.
A big thank you again to all of you who helped us say "Thank You" to our sponsors last year for their years of encouragement and their front lines help in fighting Covid. For those of you who have sailed with us before, Welcome Back! We can't wait to sail with you again! For those of you who are thinking of joining us, please know that we have all ranges of disabilities and sailing experience out on the race course. You can reach out to Buttons, Bill or Siobhan with any questions.
We are looking forward to bringing back together the Robie Community and adding some new members to the mix!
Thank you to our sponsors
