Bayfield Race Week

July 03-07, 2023

Wayzata Yacht Club | Bayfield, WI, USA

Bayfield Race Week is the centerpiece of the AIS season: a week long festival of sailing on the South Shore of Lake Superior. The event surrounds the 4th of July, and attracts boats and crews all points of the compass, including: Canada, Florida, Duluth, and the Twin Cities.

Race week itself kicks-off on Sunday evening with registration.  Racing starts at 1100 each day, with multiple fleets. Depending on conditions, up to three races may be run in a day.

Post race entertainment starts with the social at the Pavilion each night, with prizes, and continues on throughout the week. Bayfield in the mid summer is a lively place with many unique dining and live music options.
