POSTPONED – St. Augustine Race Week 2020

March 20, 2020

Once again the First Coast Sailing Association and its associated yacht clubs are proud to bring to St. Augustine the premiere sailing event of the spring season. It’s an eight-day celebration of all types of sailing set in America’s oldest seaport city. In 2020 we’ll continue that great combination of competition and entertainment with spectator events and entertainment the entire city can enjoy. As always, St Augustine Race Week offers Challenging Offshore Yacht Racing, Exciting Inshore Yacht Racing and Inspiring Bayfront Youth Sailboat Racing for sailors from 12 – 92 arriving from up and down the Atlantic coast. Sailers will race their yachts on the Ocean in the River and on the Bay! FAST, FUN and FRIENDLY events for Sailors, Spectators and Party People on the Water and on the Land for a full week in St Augustine, Florida. It’s the world-famous St Augustine Race Week – March 14-21, 2020.

Race Week 2020 includes all the features everyone loves including the best live local bands, great food, delicious rum drinks and convivial socializing with all your sailing friends – public is invited too – downtown in the Meehan’s Big Party Tent at the St. Augustine Municipal Marina. To get your 2020 shirts, hats, sail bags and other paraphernalia, check the merchandise page on the Race week website. And, like the 2019 event, hundreds of spectators will see the delightful spectacle of youngsters racing right off the Bayfront in their One-Design 420’s. We will even have a Dragon Boat demonstration on the Bayfront, too!

Something for Every Boat. You don’t have to own an ocean-going boat to participate. Slightly smaller yachts and even trailerable sailing boats are invited to race in the popular Inshore Series in the Tolomato River just North of the Vilano Bridge. The Offshore Series is for serious racers who like lots of traditional round-the-buoys, upwind-downwind racing. The Tactical Challenge Series presents a set of coordinates to be reached by any route sailors choose.

Kids – The Best Thing about the Regatta: In the summer of 2019 proceeds from St. Augustine Race Week enabled us to send nearly 40 underprivleged kids to various summer sailing camps around the area free of charge! That’s what we’re all about – giving less fortunate children a great summer experience and training the next generation of sailors. We’re looking forward to increasing that amount in 2020 and giving even more kids their first experience at the helm of a real sailboat. The 2020 SARW One-Design 420 Youth Regatta sails in the Matanzas Bay on its own special weekend, March 14th & 15th.
