The annual Sunset Harbor Challenge Regatta was established in the early 2000s by Ed and Lynn Sims.
It is a one-day "Around-the-Lake" race on the waters of Lake Weir. Initially the start/finish line was on the southwest side of Sunset Harbor at the entrance to the Sunset Harbor Marina Restaurant. After the race, we would gather at the restaurant for a great meal, socializing and Awards Ceremony. The restaurant has since closed its doors, but the Regatta tradition still carries on.
The Race is a pursuit start, and the Start/Finish line starts in Sunset Harbor. Boat handicaps are calculated before the race, and start times will vary depending on the vessel’s PHRF rating.
Whether you have raced with us over the years or are a first-time participant, please join us for our 2023 Sunset Harbor Challenge "Around-the-Lake" Regatta. We always have fun!
