South Haven Municipal Marina welcomes the 2015 Queen's Cup yachting race to South Side Marina on Friday, June 26 and Saturday, June 27.  This is the 77th annual Queen's Cup event.

The event is organized by South Shore Yacht Club in Milwaukee, and the South Haven Yacht Club hosts the finish celebration. 

The annual overnight sprint across Lake Michigan starts in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Friday, June 26th and finishes in South Haven, Michigan on Saturday, June 27th. For 2015 we anticipate more than 200 boats. More than 1,200 sailors will be crossing the open waters of Lake Michigan.

The first boats will arrive in South Haven in the early hours of Saturday, June 27.  The actual arrival times depend on the wind and boat speeds, but will likely be around dawn.

South Haven was the destination for the 2012 Queen's Cup, which was the first time the race finish was in South Haven Harbor.
