New races and new venues highlight the upcoming summer of competitive sailing on Martha’s Vineyard.


Sunny skies and crisp summer breezes combined with two full days of stellar competition as the Menemsha Pond Racers won the inaugural Vineyard Herreshoff Cup this weekend.

The competition was held June 28 and 29 on Menemsha Pond and featuring sailors from the Edgartown Yacht Club and the Menemsha Pond Racers.

The first-ever Vineyard Herreshoff Cup takes place this weekend. "The spirit of it all is to have fun and enjoy it," Edward Miller said. "We hope this will become an annual event that grows in popularity."
