From the Organizing Authority: We strongly encourage folks who might attend, to think about accommodations. If you are not a camper, it’s imperative to lock in a hotel reservation *NOW*. There is a horse race track nearby, & Saratoga Springs is a beautiful resort town with much to do, so there is much competition from NYC & Boston crowds for hotels in the summer. Otherwise, it’s probably a 50 min drive to the next hotel cluster.
In 1969, a group of enthusiastic sailors decided to establish CORK to host international sailing events off Kingston. The area offers some of the best fresh-water sailing in the world, excellent wind and wave conditions, and is a short distance from shore to the race courses. Leading up to the 1976 Olympics, the CORK regatta offered excellent training for sailors, coaches and officials and has since become a fixture on the international calendar.
