Multiple classes tack and jibe their way from Cape Henry to Rudee Inlet during this great recreational race. Need a break from the boardwalk action? Check out the boats arrival at Rudee Inlet in the afternoon or hang out at 24th Street to watch the finish.

Neptune’s Atlantic Regatta is Broad Bay Sailing Association’s last race of the season, and is also a CBYRA-sanctioned event. Starting off Little Creek, racers transit the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, sail down the coast, and finish off at 24th Street. After a night of fun at the Festival, participants leave the event’s complimentary Rudee Inlet dockage and return home. This race is part of the Southern Bay Distance Racing Series (SBDRS).
