THE SAM WETHERILL RACE

Fri Aug 17 2018

Our Sam Wetherill race with its start near the mouth of the Connecticut River and course around Block Island and back is a test of both seamanship and racing acumen. The Wetherill is a bit like a really short Bermuda Race, having both a daylight and nighttime component but finishing in hours not days. If you haven’t done an overnight race before but are considering it, feel free to contact Cliff Myers for more details.

This is an ECSA event so you will need an ECSA PHRF certificate to enter.
