2017 Edgartown Yacht Club Race Weekend

Edgartown Yacht Club, Edgartown

Edgartown Yacht Club held its first race around Martha’s Vineyard Island in the summer of 1938, and except for the years of the Second World War the race has been an annual event since then.  For a number of years the course was extended to round the Buzzards Bay Tower, but today the traditional tight course around Martha’s Vineyard Island is used.

Normally it is possible for both cruising and racing boats to finish the 52¼ nautical mile course by late afternoon or early evening. If the tidal currents or wind conditions make going slow, the Race Committee will finish the race just north of Menemsha.

This annual event is held at Oak Bluffs Marina.

This event will always be open to the public, catering to all fishing enthusiasts with vessels that have the range to fish in the vicinity of northeast canyons. The OBBC encompasses an overnight adventure, allowing entrants to fish for two straight days before returning to the dock. The OBBC involves 3 fishing days to chose from, fishing 2 out of 3 and a lay day.

Barnstable Harbor Kayak and Climb Sandy Neck Lighthouse

Long Pasture Sanctuary, 345 Bone Hill Road, Cummaquid

Join us as we kayak Cape Cod's largest barrier beach and salt marsh system and see for yourself why this is one of the state's most impressive coastal ecosystems. Traveling the great marsh by kayak offers a whole new perspective on nature, and an intimacy with the tide.

It also allows you to get into shallow waters, where larger boats can't go!

Launching from Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, we will explore the many tidal creeks and islands of the harbor, looking for shorebirds, osprey, horseshoe crabs and other creatures of the marsh. We'll come ashore at the Sandy Neck barrier beach lighthouse and have the unusual privilege of climbing to the top to see the beautiful view.
