Sailboat off Edgartown

The 2015 Edgartown Race Weekend, hosted by the Edgartown Yacht Club, will be held July 23 through July 25 on Martha’s Vineyard.

The highly anticipated sailing event features IRC, PHRF Spinnaker, PHRF Non-Spinnaker and HPR handicap divisions (specific classes for Double-Handed, One Design, and Classic yachts are added when at least 3 entries are entered for each), with ‘Round-the-Buoy Races on Thursday and Friday (July 23-24) and a 56-nautical-mile ‘Round-the-Island Race, which circumnavigates Martha’s Vineyard, on Saturday (July 25). A Welcome Reception on Wednesday night (July 22), the Mount Gay-sponsored “Jump-Up” Party on Friday night, and award ceremonies on both Friday and Sunday (July 26) round out the schedule for competitors who are entered in one or the other, or both, of the racing sessions. (Sailors can also compete for trophies in just one or the other of the 2 ‘Round-the-Buoy days.)

Deadline for entry is July 22 for the former and July 24 for the latter.  (No registration fee is required for the ‘Round-the-Buoy Races.) CLICK HERE For more information.
