The Cape Henry Cup Race 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.

"Broad Bay Sailing Association" is a non-profit organization. Virginia Beach, VA 23454
