Proceeds to Benefit Kids

St. Augustine Race Week raises funds to send underprivileged children to local sailing camps every summer as part of our JDM Youth Sailing Scholarship Fund, named in honor of the late John Meehan, a strong supporter of St Augustine Race Week.
In 2021, our generous Sponsors made it possible for us to send nearly 40 underprivileged kids to summer sailing camps free of charge.

A Perfect Event for St. Augustine and You

Once again the First Coast Sailing Association and its associated yacht clubs are proud to bring to St. Augustine the premiere sailing event of the spring season. It’s an eight-day celebration of all types of sailing set in America’s oldest seaport city. In 2022 we’ll continue that great combination of competition and entertainment with Spectator Events, Parties, Live Music and Awards Ceremonies. As always, St Augustine Race Week offers Challenging Offshore Yacht Racing, Exciting Inshore Yacht Racing and Inspiring Bayfront Youth Sailboat Racing for sailors from 12 – 92 arriving from up and down the Atlantic coast. Sailers will race their yachts on the Ocean in the River and on the Bay! WARM OCEAN, FRIENDLY PEOPLE, HOT COMPETITION events for Sailors, Spectators and Party People on the Water and on the Land for a full week in St Augustine, Florida. This year, Parties & Live Music Events in the Meehan’s Big Party Tent are OPEN to the public. It’s the world-famous St Augustine Race Week, March 26th – April 2nd 2022.

Race Week 2022 includes all the features everyone loves including the best live local bands, 2022 SARW
great food, delicious rum drinks and convivial socializing with all your sailing friends. This year’s Parties will be held in the Meehan’s Big Party Tent Downtown at the St Augustine Municipal Marina and are OPEN to the public. Private Ceremonies and Events will be held at the St Augustine Yacht Club. 2022 SARW shirts, hats, sail bags and other paraphernalia will be available for sale at each of the Awards Ceremonies.  And, like our 2021 event, hundreds of spectators will see the delightful spectacle of youngsters racing right off the Bayfront in their One-Design 420’s. We will even have a Dragon Boat demonstration on the Bayfront, too!
Something for Every Boat. You don’t have to own an ocean-going boat to participate. Slightly smaller yachts and even trailerable sailing boats are invited to race in the popular Inshore Series in the Tolomato River just North of the Vilano Bridge. The Offshore Series is for serious racers who like lots of traditional round-the-buoys, upwind-downwind racing. The Tactical Challenge Series presents a set of coordinates to be reached by any route sailors choose.
Kids – The Best Thing About Our Regatta: In the summer of 2021 proceeds from St. Augustine Race Week enabled us to send nearly 40 underprivleged kids to various summer sailing camps around the area free of charge! That’s what we’re all about – giving less fortunate children a great summer experience and training the next generation of sailors. We’re looking forward to increasing that amount in 2022 and giving even more kids their first experience at the helm of a real sailboat. The 2022 SARW One-Design 420 Youth Sailing Regatta sails in the Matanzas Bay on its own special weekend, March 26th & 27th 2022.

MULTIPLE RACING FORMATS

CRUISERS

Conquistador’s Corner – You’ll be given a prescribed latitude and longitude. Sail out to touch each line at any point and return to the finish.
Menendez’s Meander – Just like Pedro Menendez de Aviles, you’ll sail up and down the coastline to prescribed North latitude, a Southern latitude and back to finish.

SPIN and NON-SPIN
PERFORMANCE BOATS

Mariners Triangles – No imaginary points to find. It’s traditional round-the-buoys racing action with upwind, downwind, reaching legs and back to the finish line. We’ll do as many races as we can each day depending on time and wind conditions.

SMALLER YACHTS

The Inshore Series – The course will be set up in the Intracoastal Waterway North of the Vilano Bridge with tight racing between the banks. On the final day we hope to have you race downtown for spectators along the Bayfront.

THE YOUTH SAILING REGATTA

This year, our Youth Sailors will compete in the 2022 SARW One-Design 420 Youth Sailing Regatta on the Opening Weekend of Race Week. The Youth Sailing Regatta is an entirely separate regatta with its own set of trophy winners to be awarded Sunday at the St Augustine Yacht Club.

JDM Youth Sailing Scholarship Fund

All excess funds generated by SARW sponsorships and entry fees go to support our John Daniel Meehan Youth Sailing Scholarship Program. Each summer we send kids aged 8-18 to summer sailing camps in the Northeast Florida area where they learn the basics of sailing and water safety while also having loads of fun. In the summer of 2021 proceeds from St. Augustine Race Week enabled us to send nearly 40 underprivleged kids to various summer sailing camps around the area. All at no charge!

Our partners in this program are St. Augustine Yacht Club, North Florida Cruising Club, Florida Yacht Club, Halifax River Yacht Club, Halifax Youth Sailing, The Rudder Club of Jacksonville, Queens Harbour Yacht Club, and Smyrna Yacht Club. We look forward to another fun year in 2022.
