Cape Henry Cup

Cape Henry Cup

The Cape Henry Cup is a CBYRA-sanctioned event with points qualifying for their High Point standings. This unique long-distance race takes racers over around multiple marks in the lower Chesapeake Bay.  The race officers selects from multiple course options prior to the race depending on the weather.  

The Cape Henry Cup Race for Cruising and MORC boats (now PHRF) was established in 1974.  As one of the most popular races on the southern Chesapeake, the course originally passed out through the Maryland Channel opening of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel and returning through the Thimble Shoal Channel opening.  Now we maintain the distance, but usually do not go through the openings.  This race is part of the Southern Bay Distance Racing Series (SBDRS).
