Eight days of sailing and social events begin in a week as part of St. Augustine Race Week.
Organizers call the sixth annual racing and regatta “Fast, Fun and Friendly” for adults and children.
The “Big Boats” will race off the coast of St. Augustine in the Atlantic and in-shore racers will sail in the Tolomato River, just north of the Vilano Bridge. Young sailors will shoot through the Matanzas Bay between the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument and the Bridge of Lions that spans the Intracoastal Waterway.
The event, April 17-24, will be held at several locations, including the historic St. Augustine Yacht Club on Ocean Vista Avenue.
The public can attend specific activities and view the races free. Schedules, activities, and rules are available here.
