Mark Your Calendars… Save the Date:  July 19th-21st, 2024

A long-time favorite with Chesapeake Bay Racers, Screwpile is returning again to its mid-summer 3-day weekend.

Three days of great racing and fun parties at Safe Harbor Zahnisers Marina… Friday-Sunday, July 19th-21tst, Mount Gay rum drinks, Beer Truck, red hats, music each night and the customary, excellent race management.

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

And… PHRF of the Chesapeake will team with Screwpile to hold its 2024 PHRF of the Chesapeake Northern-Bay Championships.

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 2024 Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge.
