This classic race took place on the August 28-29 weekend this year. Day one takes you from the Seafare's Memorial Park Beach in downtown Anacortes, through Guemes Channel, across to the southeast corner of Cypress Island and along its west side. From there you cross Bellingham Channel to Clark Point at the north end of Guemes Island and continue along the east side of the island, returning to the start/finish line at Seafare's Park. The second day is a simple counterclockwise circumnavigation of Guemes Island. Stong currents and beautiful scenery makes this a must do. I beleive that there are some marine parks for overnighting on Cypress and Guemes can be circumnavigated in a leisurely four hour paddle.
