The Adventuress Cup

The Adventuress Cup - A Race for the Salish Sea

Join us on October 19th! Registration opens by the end of June

What is The Adventuress Cup?
The Adventuress Cup - A Race for the Salish Sea is a public, values-driven event that engages people who care about our marine environment and the future we are leaving the next generation. This pandemic inspired event reflects Sound Experience's culture of safety and inclusion. In 2024, the Adventuress Cup spotlights the importance of our maritime environment and the world’s oceans to the health of countless species, human beings and the economy.

How does The Adventuress Cup work?
Race participants can join the fun on the water or virtually as part of a real or virtual team. Team members are encouraged to participate in peer-to-peer fundraising and Wind in Your Sails pre-race challenges to improve their boat’s handicap (or score). All participating boats must meet safety and other requirements outlined in the official Notice of Race (2023 version for reference, 2024 version will be posted in the late summer/early fall). All boats are welcome - sailboats of all sizes are encouraged to race and power boats are invited to join in a pre-race parade!

When and where is The Adventuress Cup?
The 5th annual Adventuress Cup will be held on Saturday, October 19th at Shilshole Bay in Seattle. Stay tuned for more details!
