From the spectacular start off Fort Adams in Narragansett Bay past Castle Hill, Brenton Reef, Block Island, Montauk Point, Martha's Vineyard, Buzzards Tower, to a signature finish inside Newport Harbor off the historic Ida Lewis Yacht Club, the 2008 edition of this 175nm moderate distance race will ply some of the most storied and beautiful sailing grounds in the world.

Back by popular demand, the fourth running of the Ida Lewis Distance Race is scheduled for Friday, August 15, 2008, with classes for IRC, PHRF (spinnaker and non-spinnaker), and double-handed boats. The race is one of the qualifying events for the New England Lighthouse Series (PHRF), Northern and Double-Handed Ocean Racing Trophies (IRC). Additionally it is a qualifier for the US-IRC Gulf Stream Series. Friends and family are invited to follow the finish from the deck of the Ida Lewis Yacht Club and join the post-race festivities Saturday evening. Put the date on your calendar!
