“We don’t think it will come as a surprise to anyone that we will not be able to have Sailfest in July. The good news is, the Sailfest team is working with the City of New London to have five smaller events this summer. We are still in the planning stage and will announce the events soon,” Barbara Neff, executive director of the Downtown New London Associations and owner of Neff Productions said in a statement.
