St. Augustine Race Week 2016 returns! This spectacular event began strictly for sailors, but has turned into a community-wide sailing celebration adding several new events for spectators to watch from the city’s downtown bayfront. The public is also invited to two nights of free concerts featuring top touring bands and the best in local entertainment in the “Party Tent” adjacent to the Municipal Marina. The five-day event includes all types of sailboat competition. Offshore races, “inshore” races, a youth Sailing Regatta, paddle board racing, kayak racing, and dragon boats.
At the end of each day’s aquatic events, Meehan’s Party Tent (at the Maina) becomes the center of activity. Food and beverage vendors serve full meals along with beer, soda and rum drinks outside the tent. Inside the tent are two nights of top-tier bands.
Please visit the St. Augustine Race Week website for a full line-up of events, including entertainment, and all additional information.
