Islands in the Stream Series update
Published on October 13th, 2020
The winter plan for the 2020-21 Islands in the Stream Series in south Florida and the Bahamas remains on schedule, with the 4-event plan kicking off on November 12 with the Nassau Cup Race, a 180 nm course from Miami to Nassau, leaving Great Isaac and Great Stirrup to starboard.
With the Bahamian government ending the 14-day quarantine period for new arrivals on November 1, shoreside activities will be organized as appropriate given the conditions at the time of the race.
The Notices of Race is online for the first three events, and early entries are encouraged to facilitate planning. For information on Bahamian entry requirements, visit https://bahamasmarinas.com/procedures-and-protocols/
2020-21 Islands in the Stream Series
The 79th edition of the Nassau Cup Ocean Race begins November 12.
The Wirth M Munroe Palm Beach Race is up next, and the “Race to the Buffett” starts on December 4 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 21, 2021. 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 2nd annual Eleuthera Race, starting off South Beach, Miami on February 17, 2021 and finishing at the Cape Eleuthera Resort and Marina.
