The weather is looking good for the 5th annual Archipelago Rally, scheduled for this Saturday, Nov. 13, in Bristol, Rhode Island. The fun, laidback sailing event will begin at the Narrows on the Kickiamuit River on Mount Hope Bay at 10:45. The rally welcome participants in any sort of sailing vessel, no matter how small or strange. Organizers say that they will likely hold the race inside the river due to some of the tiny craft that will be competing. A fun and delicious BBQ, with free beer provided by Block Island Brewery, will be held after the event.
Boats that have competed in past rallies include windsurfers, sailing canoes, beetle cats, Dyer Dhows, 420s, Lasers, Sunfish, Sailfish and sail kayaks.
