# Centerboard Yacht Club's Northeast Harbor Race, Portland to Northeast Harbor, starting August 27.

# Rockland Yacht Club's Maine Rocks Shorthanded Race, starting September 18.
It occurs to me that I should point out that all the above races count as 2 race days each, the way GMORA scores things. The Downeast Challenge is ~135 nm; the Northeast Harbor Race ~120 nm; the Maine Rocks Race, ~113 nm. In the Monhegan Regatta, the double-handed racers typically sail the ~70 nm course.

Note that any race sanctioned by GMORA can count, even if it doesn't have a separate short-handed division (but who wants to race short-handed against crewed boats?).
