Benedict Arnold10/7/2017 - 10/7/2017 1100 - Sat David Klebanoff
General Description: This race commemorates the Revolutionary War naval Battle of Valcour which occurred on Friday, October 11, 1776, between an American fleet commanded by Benedict Arnold and a British fleet under the authority of Sir Guy Carleton, though he was not the operational commander. The weather that day was clear with a northerly wind. Snow could be seen on the mountains. The American fleet was anchored across the Valcour Channel from near Bluff Point to the New York shore. There were 500 non-sailors in this fleet. The British fleet, 700 sailors, had passed the eastern shore of Valcour Island the previous day, sailing south. In order to attack the American fleet, the British fleet had proceeded to windward up the Valcour Channel by tacking and rowing. The first British ship was sighted by the Americans at 8 AM. The battle commenced three hours later at 11 AM with the main forces joining battle at 12:30 PM. The battle ended at 5 PM. During the battle Arnold's flag ship "Royal Savage" was badly damaged and driven ashore on Bluff Point where it was abandoned. After the battle the British fleet retired south and anchored in a blocking line with the eastern end of the line near Garden Island. However, during the night Arnold was able to slip away by sailing down the western shore of the Channel. On the following days in their search for the American fleet, it was reported that some British ships fired upon a rock south of Providence Island, thinking it was an American ship. That rock is now named Carleton Prize.
