The race, now in its 16th year, regularly attracts 300 participants whose goal is to reach Cleveland Ledge Light and get back faster than anyone else “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.

This year’s race, which is again hosted by Kingman Yacht Club, will see the introduction of a Poker Run, also held on Saturday and designed to involve powerboaters in the festivities.
