Schooner Wharf Bar Wrecker’s Cup Race Series

Key West Sailing Tradition!

This fun race series recalls the tradition of the wreckers in the Key West of the 1800’s. Vessels with rich cargoes from Gulf and Caribbean ports often became victims of the unmarked reefs 7 miles off Key West.

The first wrecker to reach the site had the responsibility to save the passengers and crew, but they also won the right to salvage the cargoes.
