Just Sailing Away
Plan now to enter or view the 82nd Queens Cup one of most anticipated yacht races on the Great Lakes. This year’s night race across Lake Michigan departs Friday from Milwaukee, WI on June 26 2020 to arrive Saturday on the shores of Grand haven, MI June 27 2020.
Both Milwaukee’s South Shore Yacht Club and the Grand River Sailing Club will provide an experience worthy of this 82nd Queen’s Cup Race.
The race is open to all boats with a valid 2020 Lake Michigan Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (LM-PHRF) rating certificate and Offshore Racing Rule (ORR) rating certificates. We will continue to have starts for the shorthanded fleet (with a limit of two crew per boat) and a cruising fleet for non-spinnaker monohulls.
We are looking forward to increasing the participation of “one design” boats such as the J/105, Beneteau 40.7, Beneteau 36.7, and Tartan 10s. The racing between these particular boats and other “one design” boats has been close in prior years.
