The traditional end of summer Herreshoff Cup Race included a twist this year, with the Vineyard Haven Yacht Club competing in the race for the first time and playing host.
Clear skies and fair seas but not much wind met the 66 sailing teams that set out Saturday in the Edgartown Yacht Club’s annual ‘Round-the-Island race, a Vineyard tradition since 1938.


The Edgartown Yacht Club will host the championships beginning Sept. 5, a competitive regatta.
