It is once again time for the 2nd race in the popular 25th Annual Schooner Wharf Bar Wrecker's Cup Race Series, when local captains, crews and passengers race the seven miles to Sand Key on an annual quest for bragging rights on this small island.

The "day of wreckoning" is Sunday, February 28th at 1:00 p.m. when ships in five different classes will reenact the times in Key West history when wreckers would race to a disabled ship, rescue the crew and then lay claim to the cargo. The five classes for the race series are: Classic, Schooner, Multi-hull, Monohull over 30, and Monohull under 30 feet.

There is nothing to rescue at Sand Key, except bruised egos from the last race, but the anything-but-serious race is still on. Join your friends, captains and mates for a day of rivalry on the high seas. The January race fleet of forty three welcomed twenty new and visiting yachtsmen to the fleet. Vessels ranged from small knock about sloops to classic Schooners filling the harbor with their sails.

The entry fee is $30.00, which includes free rum punch and hors d'oeuvres at the Captains Meeting on Saturday, February 27th, at 7:00 p.m. on the upper deck of Schooner Wharf.

The Awards Ceremony will take place after the race on Sunday at 7:00 p.m., where all wreckers can feast on a BBQ dinner and share sailing stories while watching their maritime adventure on a big screen television. The public is welcome to watch the regatta video at Schooner Wharf, home to the largest working fleet of Schooners on the east coast. Bring your dancing shoes because adding to the festivities will be live music with the Calypso Latin Party

Winners will receive a bottle of Pussers Rum and a souvenir rum mug along with the antique looking trophies commemorating the victory, bar tabs and Wreckers Race Tee Shirts sponsored by Schooner Wharf Bar.

All participating vessels will be eligible to win great prizes valued at over $600 courtesy of West Marine Downtown and Stock Island.

But the crews and captains are not the only ones who can participate in the fun. The race is a great way for captains to fill their charter boats for an afternoon sail, as locals and visitors to the island get to take part in a seafaring adventure.
