Bayfield Race Week, 2018. (BRW 2018)
When: July 2nd-July 6th, 2018.
Where: Bayfield, Wisconsin.

This will be the 40th annual Bayfield Race Week, and attendance is expected to be at the highest of all time for another year in a row! Held over the week of July 02-July 06, and boasting to be one of the few remaining full weeks of racing in existence, BRW is genuinely something special.

Race Week has been experiencing incredible growth over the last decade, in no small part due to the inclusive nature of the event, super fun atmosphere and great competition in all classes. The best example of this inclusive attitude is the recent expansion of mid distance racing fleet, and the addition of the sport boat fleet (Ultimate 20, Melges 20, J70, Viper, etc...) as well as this year's addition of a small boat fleet (J24s, S2s, Capri 25s).

As a U20 sailor, and long time Bayfield race week attendee, I can confidently say this is EASILY THE MOST FUN you can have for the price. To quote Steve Rose; "the smiles per dollar ratio in Bayfield is through the roof".

This year that statement is even more accurate with registration fees dropping to a ludicrously low cost: $175 for sport boat/small boat skippers who have not attended race week before if you register before March 31.
After March 31 the price is a still very affordable $200. New skippers will also receive a $50 town of bayfield gift card that can be used at local bars, shops, grocery/liquor stores, etc...and effectively drops the registration price 50 dollars. This is a screaming deal!

This is the most fun you can have on your U20. There's pristine Lake Superior sailing surrounded by the beautiful apostle islands, incredible competition, and a great party every night.

We've had a great sport boat fleet the last few years, and the Ultimates have had a blast. Come join in the fun!
