The Storm Trysail Foundation is a registered 501 (c) 3 whose mission is to educate young sailors as they bridge the gap between learning to sail and becoming accomplished blue water seamen, through a national program of events including:

Safety at Sea SUNY Maritme
Junior Safety at Sea Seminars (Larchmont, Newport, Perth Amboy, Annapolis, Shelter Island, Castine, Noank and Marblehead)
Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta
Annual Golf Tournament
Annual Seamanship Award Dinner

The Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta has been run by the Storm Trysail Foundation in conjunction with the Larchmont Yacht Club since 2006. This years event will be held October 7-8, 2017.

The event has grown every year and last year we were able to accommodate almost 400 college sailors. Thanks to our high quality list of sponsors, some private donations, and the generosity of participating boat owners, Storm Trysail Foundation and Larchmont Yacht Club are able to run this regatta at no cost to the schools' sailing teams. Our sponsors include Rolex, North Sails, Gill North America, Safe Flight Instruments, Flintrock Construction, Pantaenius America Ltd and Dimension-Polyant.

We are looking for additional sponsors to help us expand the IOR and to continue the high quality of the event. There are three categories of sponsorship. If you think your company could be a possible sponsor we would appreciate hearing from you. We also established a new category of support for the event, the IOR Partner Supporter.
