The race, now in its 17th year, regularly attracts 300 participants whose goal is to reach Cleveland Ledge Light and get back to Red Brook faster than anyone else and “without loss of life, limb or dignity”.

The sailboat race remains central to the weekend event, and the “pursuit” format provides a challenge for sailors of all experience levels and abilities.

The race will also involve a Poker Run, also held on Saturday and designed to involve powerboaters in the festivities.
