No protests, no pageantry, just race with us - or against us!

It is once again time for the 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, April 25, 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 will be an extra PHRF rated leg for the Key West Sailing Club Commodore Series.

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 and radio insults on the high seas.

The entry fee is $30.00, which includes free drinks and hor d'oeuvres at the Captains Meeting on Saturday, April 24, 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. Dance the night away with the Christopher Dean Band.

Winners will receive prizes from race sponsors, including Schooner Wharf Bar, Pussers and antique looking trophies commemorating the victory. The "Great West Marine Nautical Raffle" is free for all participating vessels, with impressive prizes from the folks that "make boating fun".

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 visitors to the island get to take part in a local adventure, spectators can watch the madness from Schooner Wharf Bar while getting an up-close look at traditional and majestic wooden boats.
