Held over Labor Day weekend, the Mini-Cruise typically combines a short day race with an overnight raft-up and a race home the following day. And while racing is involved, the powerboating crowd often joins in on the fun. The raft-up often features activities for the kids and an adult beverage competition for their elders.

For more information about the Mini-Cruise or to offer your suggestions, please contact this year's event organizer, Jonathan Nye. Discussion is underway whether to return to West Harbor off Oyster Bay, participate in the Huntington Lighthouse Music Festival or do something altogether different. You input is appreciated.


Awarded to the winner of the Mini-Cruise, this trophy was presented in 1994 by Barbara Ornstein and her children in memory of her husband, Peter Ornstein, an avid sailor and frostbiter.
