The Monhegan Island Race that historically included three courses, will now be simplified and modified for a new era. Since 1928, the race has seen many modifications to fit the times and 2021 is no exception. One item that will always remain, is the tradition of sailing offshore in the Gulf of Maine while competing with some of the best sailors from around the world and beyond.
There will be a multihull class so if you plan to be in the Maine area please consider entering this event.
NOTE: This will not be a NEMA season point event however.
