Keep your eyes on the water today where hundreds of sailboats, from schooners to catboats to modern design racers, are partaking in the Vineyard Cup. Races are based out of Vineyard Haven harbor, but you also can catch a glimpse of the action from the East an West Chop Lighthouses, Eastville Beach, State Beach and at the entrance of Lake Tashmoo.

The Vineyard Cup is an annual benefit for Sail Martha’s Vineyard, which provides sailing lessons and instructions to Island youth.
