A long-time favorite with Chesapeake Bay Racers, Screwpile is returning again to its mid-summer weekend.

Three days of great racing and fun parties at Safe Harbor Zahnisers Marina… Friday-Sunday, July 14th-16th, Mount Gay rum drinks, Beer Truck, red hats, live music each night and the customary, excellent race management.

ORC, PHRF, and One-Design racing on windward/leeward course.  CRCA and ORC Cruisers on open, fixed course with government marks.  Something for everyone.

Don’t miss it!

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 2023 Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge.
