As you gear up for the Marblehead to Halifax Ocean Race, consider this exciting trip extension temptation: seven days and five races, amidst the stunning beauty of Cape Breton Island during Race the Cape 2015.

With the Marblehead start date of July 5th -- sailors will arrive in Halifax with plenty of time to sail on to St. Peter’s, Cape Breton for Sunday, July 12th.

After the round-the-clock sailing competition of Marblehead, Race the Cape offers a change of pace, while still  providing a professional, high-calibre race. Five races, in fact, from July 12th - July 18th. The races happen during the day, then each port hosts a stellar evening of local entertainment, food and awards from the day’s race.

Let this short video take you into the heart of the action.

The set up is five competitive point-to-point races across Cape Breton Island, covering a total of 175 nautical miles. The fleet will start in St. Peter’s, sailing from St.Peter’s to Ben Eoin, then Ben Eoin to Baddeck. Arriving in Baddeck Tuesday evening, there will be a lay-over day on Wednesday allowing folks to explore the town and the many Cape Breton Island attractions. Thursday the race starts up again from Baddeck to North Sydney, North Sydney to Ingonish, and finally, last but not least, Ingonish to Sydney on Saturday. Here’s the complete schedule.

You’ll explore new challenging waters each day, including the 450 square miles of inland sea known as the Bras d’Or Lake, along with 75 nautical miles of ocean racing. Then each evening bask in the renowned Cape Breton hospitality with tunes and tasty meals.

Our goal is for you to focus on the magnificent combination of racing and relaxing. To achieve that, we provide storage and transfer of any extra gear you might want for cruising, but not for racing. And wondering how you’ll stayed stocked with the necessary food and beverages? We have that covered, too. In each hosting port, experienced volunteer drivers will be on hand to take you to nearby grocery and liquor stores. Short on crew members? We have a volunteer crew bank of talented sailors ready to share their nautical skills.

There’s really no reason not to make this July one for the history books. Keep the momentum rolling from Marblehead to Halifax to Cape Breton. It’ll be a time! Join the Adventure and be at the Heart of the Action with Race the Cape!

See you on the water,

Race the Cape crew
