This biennial classic international 363 mile ocean race needs to be on your 2015 race schedule. Experienced crews and navigators will always get challenged by the variable weather, wind and currents between Massachusetts Bay and the Nova Scotia coastline. For skippers looking for a first time ocean racing experience you will find a straightforward entry process, a welcoming fleet and great hospitality from the Boston Yacht Club and the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron.
This year will be special as the race starts on Sunday July 5th. Marblehead will be in full celebration for the 4th of July weekend and the fireworks show at the mouth of the harbor on Saturday night can not be missed:
