Key West Race Week 2011 is taking place in Key West, Florida from January 17-21, 2011. The 24th edition of North America’s first major regatta of the winter season offers five full race days for IRC, One-Design, PHRF, multihull and 20’ sportboat classes.

You will enjoy world class competition and fun shore side parties in this warm water, spectacular venue. Premiere Racing’s reputation for excellent race management and regatta organization promises to deliver another great winter get-away for racing sailors.

January 17, 2011 was beautiful, warm and sunny by the time the fleet of 134 boats headed out to the race course to begin Key West 2011 presented by Nautica and the sailors forgot the tropical torrents that had them worried overnight.

Mother Nature was smiling on the popular annual regatta and the nice weather coupled with 12-14 knot southerly winds enabled organizers to complete two races on the opening day.
