Revisions for SORC in 2019-20
Published on August 22nd, 2019
The winter plan for the 2019-2020 Islands in the Stream Series delivers a four race offshore schedule that mixes tradition and change.
The series will once again kick off with the Nassau Cup Ocean Race, starting on Thursday, November 14th, 2019. This is the 78th edition of the race which expects a good-sized fleet of IRC/ORC/PHRF boats along with Multihulls who will be racing under the MORCA rules.
The Wirth M Munroe Palm Beach Race is up next, and the “Race to the Buffett” starts on Friday December 6 and finishes with Sailfish Club of Florida’s legendary party, feast and awards presentation.
The series then heads south for some island time in January with the Ft. Lauderdale to Key West Race on January 23, 2020. The tropics in January provide the perfect spot to unwind with the Conch Grinder Race, and to enjoy the treasures and pleasures of Key West before the awards party at First Flight Island Bar and Restaurant (formerly Kelly’s Caribbean).
It all wraps up with another trip to the Bahamas with the inaugural Eleuthera Race, starting off South Beach, Miami on March 11, 2020 and finishing at the Cape Eleuthera Resort and Marina. The race and series awards party will take place on the beach overlooking Exuma Sound.
