Describe what makes the Vineyard so appealing?
The Vineyard Race presents constant strategic and navigational challenges, demands a crew maintain boat speed around the whole course, and never fails to throw in a few “equalizers” along the way. As a coastal distance race it has everything

What is the most difficult part of racing The Vineyard?
