ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – The Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club and the Sandy Hook Bay Catamaran Club will present a $500 check to the borough’s volunteer fire company.
The presentation to be made at the borough council session tomorrow is in recognition of the fire company’s work to protect lives and property in the community, according to borough administrator Adam Hubeny.
The money comes from donations to the yacht club’s Blue Water Regatta, a two-day gathering on Sandy Hook Bay hosted by the yacht and catamaran clubs and sponsored by local businesses.
Last year’s event attracted 46 entries from beach catamarans to 42-foot cruising sailboats, making it the best attended regatta last year on Sandy Hook Bay, Hubeny said.
