2019 will mark the 64th edition of this classic 46nm race. Run annually the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend, these competitors typically race to Stratford Shoal and back... The nickname "Gearbuster" attests to the usually boisterous weather we enjoy in October, often resulting in unforeseen damage. Racing includes fully crewed and double-handed divisions plus a shorter 19nm course for non-spinnaker divisions.
