The Q RACE – a singlehanded race run since 1981 (now with a double handed section)—takes place approximately every-other year on the third Friday of August.  The next race will take place Friday, August 16, 2019. This singlehanded challenge is intended to encourage adventure, self reliance, and competition in the tradition of singlehanded sailing. While also a race, the primary focus of this challenge is accomplishing the goal of completing the course – relying on oneself, yet enjoying the camaraderie of like-minded sailors. We include a separate division — the DoubleHanded — as an introduction to the spirit of the singlehanded challenge. Additional information will be supplied to entrants.

Course: Approximately 70 nautical miles from a starting line at Racine, Wisconsin, rounding the south NOAA mid-lake weather buoy and returning to a finish line at Racine, Wisconsin.
