Screw­pile Light­house Chal­lenge - July 15-17, 2022




Back to the Future!

A long-time favorite with Chesapeake Bay Racers, Screwpile is returning to its summer roots… July 15th-17th, 2022.

Due to popular demand,  Screwpile is moving back to its traditional summer weekend.  So, 3 days of great racing and fun parties at Safe Harbor Zahnisers Marina… Friday-Sunday, July 15th-17th, Mount Gay, red hats, live bands each night and the customary, excellent race management.

A huge Thank You to Screwpile Racers, to our loyal sponsors, and to all the hardworking volunteers who give up their time and make the regatta a tremendous success.

Southern Maryland Sailing Association is the Organizing Authority for the 2022 Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge.
