Each year at the second to last weekend in July the Edgartown Yacht Club hosts an annual regatta which includes the prestigious Round the Island Race. The Edgartown Yacht Club held its first race around Martha’s Vineyard Island in the summer of 1938, and except for the years of the Second World War the race has been an annual event since then.
