2019 Series 34th Annual Schooner Wharf Bar Wrecker’s Cup Race Series Race Results
No protests, no pageantry, just race with us - or against us!

January Results

Much to the delight of local and visiting sailors, the Schooner Wharf Wrecker's Race was held last Sunday in advance of threatening incoming inclement weather. The race was held with a shortened course in the window of relatively pleasant weather before the storm.

It was a challenging test of seamanship for the first race in the 34th Annual Schooner Wharf Wrecker's Cup Race Series. Unusual for January, the race started with NNE winds which shifted to out of the south with 15 sustained knots and increasing. There was a strong incoming current with 1-2 foot seas and swells up to 4 feet. Current and the wind were against racers as they tacked their way up the course. The fleet definitely earned their measure of rum!

Join the next regatta on February 24th, the Captains' Meeting will be held Saturday, February 23rd at 7:00 p.m. in the Schooner Wharf Sail Loft.

February Wreckers Race

The second race of our Schooner Wharf Wrecker's Cup Race was held last Sunday with a fleet of 33 vessels. Due to the forecast of diminishing winds the course was shortened to the SW Channel old location of Channel D Marker. It was a 230 degree 4 mile run from the starting line in 2 to 3 foot seas with a slight chop. Racers enjoyed a balmy tropical day, BBQ, awards and reviewed video of themselves under sail! Next race is March 31st, for more information call 305-292-3302 or visit SchoonerWharf.com.

March Results

The 3rd race of the 2019 Schooner Wharf Wrecker’s Cup Race Series was held on Sunday, March 31st. Due to decreasing wind the course was shortened to 4 miles off Ft. Zachery Taylor. Winds started out of the east at 7 knots with an outgoing tide and diminished to 5 knots blowing from the east north east against an incoming tide with calm seas. Racers enjoyed the beautiful changing blues and greens of our waters, with turtle and flying fish sightings under clear sunny skies.

Joining the Wrecker’s fleet was the visiting 120’ wooden Fredonia fishing schooner, the Lettie G. Howard, built in 1893 in Essex, Massachusetts. This type of craft was commonly used by American offshore fishermen, and is believed to be the last surviving example of its type. She was declared a National Historic Landmark and is now based at the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City.

The last race in the series will be held Sunday, April 28th! For more information call 305-292-3302 or visit www.SchoonerWharf.com/19wreckesrace4.htm

April Results

The last race of the 2019 Schooner Wharf Wreckers Cup Race Series took place on Sunday, April 28th with a determined and skillful fleet racing 7 miles to Sand Key.+- The winds were 9 to 10 knots out of the ENE with mostly sunny skies and seafoam to emerald green seas with a light 1 to 2 foot chop.

An exciting addition to the popular sailor's regatta was the Conch Republic Cup joining the Schooner Wharf Wrecker's fleet for their first leg of their race to Cuba!

The overall winner of the 34th Annual Schooner Wharf Wrecker's Race series was captured by Hot Shot captained by Brandon Kelk.
