EYC's Solomons Invitational Race

I'm just putting it up here:

This is a Chesapeake Bay overnight race that simply doesn't get enough good exposure. It's the "feeder race" for the better-known Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge regatta in Solomon's Maryland.

The race starts just off of the Eastport Yacht Club at around 7pm, and finishes in Solomons, Md. (obvious enough, I guess)

The after-party is decent, Solomons is scenic and fun. The race isn't terribly long at 45 miles on the rhumb line. The entry fee is affordable. It's a good, intermediate race for people who are learning, or can't commit to longer slogs like Down the Bay, or even Governor's Cup. There's usually around 100 boats or more, that participate. Even if you're not a die-hard racer, the non-spin class is pretty lively.

This was my 3rd year doing it, and I'll be back. I'll bump this thread in a year to try to generate some interest.
