The Edgartown Yacht Club's Big Boat Racing Committee is excited to get started with the 2020 sailing season. The team has been working exceptionally hard over the past nine months to enhance Edgartown Race Weekend for this year, and future years, and is excited to welcome sailors to Martha's Vineyard this summer.

While Edgartown YC unfortunately had to cancel the buoy racing segment of Edgartown Race Weekend, we will still be hosting the signature event - 'Round-the-Island ("RTI") Race on August 1, in addition to the shorter 'Round-the-Sound Race the same day.

Despite the current situation, registration numbers are robust, drawing teams from all over the East Coast who see 'RTI as the kick-off to the 2020 racing season. Remember, this is a 60.0nm race that rivals any in the world; such as Round Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom, Round Jamestown in Narragansett Bay, Round Hong Kong in China, or Sweden's Gotland Runt race midsummer.

The entire team is looking forward to good racing this summer. Learn more about the Edgartown Regatta here.
