The Sailfish Club of Florida's annual Wirth M. Munroe Race, now in its 62nd year,
is one of the oldest ocean yacht races in the United States. The Organizing Authority for the race consists of The Sailfish Club of Florida in partnership with the Storm Trysail Club and the support of the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club.
This year’s race will see the addition of a second course, from Fort Lauderdale to Palm Beach, catering to racer-cruisers, cruisers, and smaller racing yachts. The new course, called the Sprint, will be 40 nautical miles, and will compliment the existing 60 nautical mile Miami to Palm Beach track, known as the Classic.
All competitors are invited to the post-race buffet dinner and awards ceremony at the Sailfish Club of Florida. The SORC, STC and the Sailfish Club of Florida will oversee race management.
The Wirth M. Munroe Race Classic Course is part of the SORC's "Islands in the Stream" series, which includes the Miami to Nassau Race, the Lauderdale to Key West Race, the Miami to Havana Race, and the Pineapple Cup which is from Miami to Montego Bay.
