Screw­pile Light­house Chal­lenge July 21-23, 2018

Since 1993 Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge has been a racer’s favorite regatta.

This regatta is held every July, in the mid­dle of the sum­mer, in the middle of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, near Solomons Island, Maryland.

The 2018 dates have been set!
Saturday, July 21st, Sunday, July 22nd, and Monday, July 23rd!
Wouldn’t you rather sail on a Monday, instead of go to work?

Skipper Check In is Friday, July 20th, the perfect day to sail in from wherever you may be…maybe race in?

And the Holiday Inn is holding a block of rooms for you! Use code YAT when you make your reservation!

Stay tuned for the Notice of Race and when you can register on Yacht Scoring…

Thanks to everyone who made the 2017 Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge so successful!
