Columbus Day Regatta returns to Biscayne Bay

The 50th Annual Columbus Day Regatta, sponsored by West Marine, will take place Oct. 9 and 10 on Miami’s Biscayne Bay.

“Our goal is to see over 200 sailboats, in both racing and cruising classes, at the starting line this year,” said chairman Larry Whipple.

Contenders will vie for first- through fifth-place trophies in all classes as well as eight perpetual trophies, and a special trophy for the best finish by a first-time entrant.
