In its 10th edition, the Ida Lewis Distance Race will feature four coastal courses between 104 nm and 177 nm, and is perfectly designed overnighter for IRC, PHRF, One Design, Multihull and Double-Handed boats of 28 feet or longer.

The round-trip course starts and finishes off the historic Ida Lewis Yacht Club and includes turning marks at Castle Hill, Brenton Reef, Block Island, Montauk Point, Martha’s Vineyard and Buzzards Tower.

Both grand prix racers and cruising sailors have come to love and embrace this August tradition, which also offers special trophies for a Youth Challenge and Collegiate Challenge. It is a qualifier for the New England Lighthouse Series (PHRF); the Northern and Double-Handed Ocean Racing Trophies (IRC); and the US-IRC Gulf Stream Series.
