Race Course

The race course through the scenic Elk River estuary changes every year. The map shown is only a rough approximation. This year’s not-so-high tide will keep us out of the weeds, perhaps. But there will be turns and lots of fun!.

Start and finish will be at Brady’s Oysters.

Course Record

Because of frequent course changes over the years, there is no course record to compare year to year.

Entry Fees

Post Race
