The race is comprised of three legs around two buoys. See Maps for an overview.

These images are provided for general guidance on the initial part of the leg.  Look up frequently to identify the buoy as you progress.  Listen carefully to the Race Director during pre-race announcements for additional information.

Boats in photos will not be present during race.

LEG 1:
This is the race start.  You will head up-river towards the middle of the Mass Ave bridge.  Aim to the left of the cluster of buildings highlighted in photo.  The buoy is located a little less than half the distance to the bridge.

Make a right-turn around buoy 1 and head just to the left of the Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary – the tan building highlighted.  The buoy is about 200 meters off the bridge.

LEG 3:
Final leg back towards the dock.  Head towards the Hancock Tower.  The race finish and timing mat are at the very end of the dock.
