Wreckers Race aboard Schooner America 2.0
All hands on deck! It is an absolute must for you to join us for the Key West Wreckers Race! Sail aboard the Schooner America 2.0 for this monthly Schooner Wharf Bar Wrecker’s Race.
Back in the days of the yore. Pirate ships from afar often ran aground on Sand Key Reef, nine miles off of the southern coast of Key West. When all the scallywags in Key West heard there was booty to be had, they’d get in their boats and race each other to the reef. The first one there could claim the ship’s cargo! Arrggh!
Today, we celebrate it with the firing of the canon at 1:00pm to start the Key West Wreckers Race. All of the schooners take off and are on their way in a one-way race to Sand Key Lighthouse. The boat that gets there first, “wins”! Enjoy the excitement aboard Schooner America 2.0 as we race for victory! An awards ceremony takes place at 9 PM at Schooner Wharf Bar. The winners are announced and treasures collected.
