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.

Thank you for another great Screwpile Lighthouse Regatta!  This one will be remembered for the rain and the wind!  Congratulations to our Overall Winner, from PHRF-B, Incommunicado!

A huge Thank You to all of the hardworking Volunteers, on the shore and on the water, who give up their time and make the regatta really happen!
