Sail boats in photos will not be present during race.
This is the race start. You will head up-river towards the Mass Ave bridge. Aim for the cluster of buildings on the right-side of the bridge. The buoy is located a little less than half the distance to the bridge.
Make a right-turn around buoy 1 and head towards the right-side of the wide red striated building.
Head towards the base of the Longfellow Bridge on the Boston side. The buoy is in front of the right-most column on the Longfellow Bridge.
Final leg back towards the dock. Head just to the right of the Hancock tower (large silver-blue building)..
