As the weather starts getting a little warmer here in the Northeast, the Edgartown Race Weekend team is getting excited for this summer's regatta.

So far, there are thirteen J/Boats registered to date for the Round Island Race, from J/160, J/122s, J/121s, J/120s, J/111s, and J/109s, to name a few. That's not enough! Double-check your schedules as you simply cannot beat the famous Round Island Race, truly one of the more spectacular races on the summer yachting calendar!

Edgartown Race Weekend is one of the nation's oldest distance races, occurring every summer on and offshore the island of Martha's Vineyard. A staple on the East Coast racing calendar, the highly-competitive and exceptionally fun race weekend includes both buoy racing and 'Round-the-Island segments and attracts boats and teams of all sizes and calibers from around the U.S. and internationally.

With nearly 50 boats already registered for this year's Race Weekend, we would like to encourage teams to reserve moorings and housing accommodations, as availabilities are quickly filling up. All logistical information can be found on the Edgartown Race Weekend homepage.

For more information, refer to the EYC website or contact Margaret Passafiume at (508) 627-4364 x18 or email at .
