Best Around the Buoys is SAIL's grass-roots racing initiative to reward racers for their team's performance at the local racing level and encourage racers to set a goal of racing on the national level. Sailors all over the country can enter to win free entry to major events such as Key West Race Week and Charleston Race Week. Winning teams are selected based on their local-sailing resume and a short essay about why their team is the ideal choice.

Entries for the BAB contest at Quantum Key West Race Week 2012 have closed. Winners will be announced in November! And check back for a new Best Around the Buoys contest coming in December!
