Participate in a Key West Sailing Tradition!

Join in the “day of wreckoning” aboard Sebago’s Appledore II Schooner as we race the 7 miles to Sand Key. In days of old, many ships grounded on the dangerous reefs off of Key West. The first wrecking captain to reach the stranded boat was awarded salvage rights. With wrecks happening once a week, this made Key West one of the wealthiest cities in the United States. Competition was fierce and spirited among Key West’s captains.

Today, competition is just as intense in the Wrecker’s Race with the prize being annual bragging rights to the fastest ship. A unique adventure unlike anything else you have experienced, this fun escapade will be a highlight of your Key West vacation!
