Sponsored by the San Juan Island Yacht Club, the 46th Annual Shaw Island Classic Sailboat Race will be held Saturday, August 6. All eligible boats and crews are invited to participate. The race starts from Friday Harbor and circumnavigates scenic Shaw Island in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction arriving back in Friday Harbor for a hearty lasagna dinner and awards presentation.

The race is a navigational challenge as currents, wind and projected boat speed must be considered to determine which way to ‘round the island.

The race is open to registered PHRF boats and cruising sailboats of all sizes and rigs, as well as multihulls and unballasted centerboards.

Trophies will be awarded for the first three finishers in each class based on corrected time, adjusted for PHRF or committee-assigned ratings.

Race details and registration information are posted on the Club’s website at www.sjiyc.com.
