Scuttlebutt Video of the Week
November 2, 2012

The 7th Annual Archipelago Rally, originally started by a group of college sailing friends led by Chris Museler and Ezra Smith, has now become a casual sailing event that is a late-fall tradition for more and more small-craft sailing enthusiasts.

Anything with a sail and that floats can compete in the 5k pursuit race, with a laidback, family-friendly atmosphere embracing the event.

This year's Rally drew a fleet of 40 boats, among them 420's, Opti's, a vintage Beetle Cat, sailing canoes, Lasers, windsurfers, Sunfish, Dyer Dhows, a Boston Whaler Squall (who knew Whaler once made sailboats?), a Zuma, a Sea Snark and a couple of home-built contraptions.

BoatingLocal's Tom Richardson captures the fun and festivities of this Rhode Island classic in Scuttlebutt's Video of the Week.
