The Wye Island Regatta

  • Hosted By: Annapolis Rowing Club, Inc.

Venue and Course

The 24th Annual Wye Island Regatta is the only 100% people-powered regatta in the Eastern US. It circumnavigates historic Wye Island, nestled on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay on the protected Wye River. Full circumnavigation for rowers and paddlers is a 13.1 mile course, with over 90% protected and scenic river and wildlife property. A course map is provided below or on our club website at

We also feature a SUP course of both 6 mile and 3 mile length. Of course some brave paddlers go the full 13.1 miles, too!
