to benefit the Mill Neck Family of Organizations, serving people who are Deaf and/or have other special communication needs, locally, nationally and around the world.
Oakcliff Sailing is making their fleet available for a fun and elegant race around Oyster Bay and into the Sound. Sailors are welcome to participate with their own yachts, as well. Spectators are invited to watch from The WaterFront Center’s showpiece Christeen, the oldest oyster sloop in North America.
