The Conch Republic Cup is a sailing race like no other. Participants race from the southernmost point in the United States to Havana, Cuba. The mission of the Conch Republic Cup is, “to introduce as many of the U.S. sailing community to Cuba as possible as well as revitalize racing in Cuba.”
Racing between Key West and Cuba has been occurring since the 1970’s. In 1997, a partnership between the Key West Community Sailing Center and Hemingway International Yacht Club was formed and the Conch Republic Cup began.
This 13-day event draws both cruisers and racers from around the world and offers both long-distance offshore racing as well as inshore buoy racing. Each day of this event is packed with activities and is designed to highlight local sailing education.
