June 15 - 23
Annapolis, MD

Pantaenius America is a long-time sponsor of this unique World Cruising Club event, designed to enable sailors to expand their horizons and gain experience sailing overnight. The event is unique in the WCC portfolio, as it’s locally focused and organized from WCC USA’s home base in Annapolis by experienced Chesapeake Bay sailors, with the support of the local marine industry. Participants sail 450 nautical miles under the full moon from Annapolis to Annapolis, counter-clockwise around the DelMarVa Peninsula over the course of a week. The rally is divided into three legs, each with their own distinct pleasures and challenges, and with stopovers en route to explore the area, meet friends, and unwind with social gatherings.
