Screw­pile Light­house Chal­lenge - Sep 27-28, 2020



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

This regatta was previously held every July, in the middle of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, near Solomons Island, Maryland. SMSA is excited to announce that it moves to September in 2020.
