The Duluth Yacht Club Sailboat Races are held on Lake Superior or in the Duluth harbor on Wednesday nights in the summer from approximately mid-May to mid-September. They start at approximately 6:15pm. Wind conditions and wave height determine where they are held. When the races are held in the harbor, the hotel has an extremely good vantage point to watch from a Harbor View Room’s balcony or the Breakwater Pier Walk. The majestic and colorful sails paint a beautiful picture against the blue waters of Lake Superior. Spectators love to watch the races from different vantage points including Park Point Beach, depending on what side of the Park Point Peninsula the races are held on. The sailboat races and the Duluth Yacht Club are dear to our hearts because of the relationship we share with the Legendary Duluth Boat Club.
