2023 Annual Round Southport Race
Welcome to the 2023 Annual Round Southport Race Information page.

This fun race between BHYC sailors and the Southport Yacht Club was resurrected in 2011 when the original trophy, a black garbage pail, was located. While we can no longer race through the Townsend Gut, this race does go around most of the island. The ‘Round Southport race is a fun race for boats of all sizes, often drawing 20 or more boats. The race is a 9.55 nm Pursuit Race; there is a cruising class and a racing class. All racers are welcome. The top three finishing boats from BHYC and SYC will determine the club that wins the coveted Trash Can Trophy.

This year, hosted by SYC, sailors will start in Ebenecook Harbor and race to Boothbay Harbor.
