This biennial race week has become a favorite of sailors due to the spectacular sailing conditions, unparalleled onshore hospitality and the great race management provided by the Club’s all-volunteer race committee. True race weeks are a rarity in today’s time-crunched world and the Club is proud to keep that traditional alive with six days of racing and activities. Different course configurations and sailing areas, such as buoy racing and mid-distance courses, will make the week lively for competitors, while the Stadium Sailing will allow spectators to watch the racing from Fort Adams.
