The 64th Mug Race! Coming up May 6, 2017

The Mug Race is thought to be the worlds longest river race, a challenging one-way course along the beautiful St. Johns River. The race begins in Palatka, FL and ends in Jacksonville just south of the Buckman I-295 Bridge.

The 64th Mug Race will feature two starts: one for multihulls and one for all other boats. All entrants must have mast heights no greater than 44 feet in order to clear the Shands Bridge in Green Cove Springs.  


There are more than 50 trophies that will be awarded based on boat class and  categories including first all female crew to finish, first dinghy monohull to finish, and even one for the last boat to finish. 

Be sure to make time for the Halfway Party at Green Cove Springs Marina, Thursday night May 4. Also, come to the Best Regatta Breakfast Anywhere, Sunday morning May 7 before the Trophy Presentation..
