Named after Robie Pierce, a disabled sailor himself and a driving force in sailing with disabilities in the U.S., this regatta was conceived by the Flag Officers of the Larchmont and American Yacht Clubs to be run jointly by the Clubs and hosted by each on alternating years.  2009’s inaugural regatta at American Yacht Club drew 22 teams sailing in specially adapted Ideal 18s. 

2011 saw the inauguration of the first all women's disabled regatta. Seven teams participated from both the US and Canada.
