Dare to Make Waves

17th Annual Ms. Race Charity Sailing Regatta

Saturday August 21, 2021

The Ms. Race is an annual charity sailboat race, hosted by the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club in August, to benefit 180 Turning Lives Around. It is a race sponsored by and for women, with the support of the AHYC club members and race committee. 2021 marks the 17th Annual Ms. Race event to be held on August 21st with the theme Dare to Make Waves. Participation in the race features all female skippers and crews. The Ms. Race has experienced increased popularity and heightened presence since its inception with record breaking participation and fundraising during last year’s pandemic. Proceeds from the Ms. Race as well as other related special events throughout the year are donated to “180, a Monmouth County N.J. based private, non-profit organization dedicated to ending domestic violence and sexual assault in our community. The goal of this year’s Ms. Race is to expand participation of women and girls of all ages including partnership with AHSEP, the Atlantic Highlands Sailing Education Program, and to raise additional funds for 180 Turning Lives Around through increased donations and sponsorships. All women sailors, with their boats and crews, are encouraged and welcome to participate. Women who don’t have a boat but would like to take part in this year’s race are encouraged to contact the Ms. Race Committee to be placed as crew on a participating sailboat.
