From the start of the 2012 race -just a sampling of the fun to be had!
2008 was the first year for this short-handed race over 113 miles along the Midcoast of Maine. It has become an annual RYC-sponsored tradition. The PHRF-rated event is opened to boats crewed by one or two people. Membership in RYC is not required. The race offers those that participate the experience of sharpening short handed offshore sailing skills and refining systems and procedures for shorthanded passage making.
