Race Week Sailing Regatta
July 23 - July 28
From the shore, it looks like a beautiful dance. Onboard, its more like organized chaos. That’s Race Week on Whidbey Island. While the races, themselves, are strictly a private regatta, each year spectators gather along Penn Cove to watch these sailors and crew challenge each other, themselves, the sea, and the wind in a week of racing to determine who has best mastered both the skill and luck of sailing.
Races start, weather permitting, in the late morning and run through mid-afternoon.
