The two-part event will begin at 2PM with a spirited sailing competition on the New York Harbor, which can be viewed aboard a spectator cruise hosted by NBC’s Willie Geist complete with cocktails, light bites, networking and fabulous views of the Statue of Liberty. Then the party will continue over at Governors Island, where a beach bash with breathtaking skyline views, an open bar, music, and tasty treats from top New York restaurants like Bagatelle, Betony, Crave Fishbar, Cull & Pistol and Lobster Place, Ed’s Chowder House, and Triomphe awaits.
