Wellesley Island State Park in upstate New York, along with Killbear in Ontario, and Hermit Island in Maine, share in a three-year rotation as the site of the annual North American rally. Last year, 2015, the rally was at Wellesley Island. This year, 2016, the rally is at Killbear. Normally the Hermit Island venue would be next, in 2017.
But, the 2017 International rally will be in North America. When it does what would usually be the North American rally becomes the International rally. Some European sailors have asked to have the 2017 International rally at Wellesley Island instead of Hermit Island.
- Currently there is a discussion about the location of the 2017 North American/International rally.
- The need to reserve a Wellesley Island State Park group campsite one year in advance is a driving issue.
- The ability to provide borrowed boats for the Europeans is an issue.
- See the International and Hermit Island rally forums for more.
