Our signature event, the Jack to Jack Yacht Race (J2J), occurs every spring on Sonoma Creek, when historically the water level is at its highest. The launch point is the Jack London Lodge/Saloon, Creekside. Our harbor is the charming downtown of Glen Ellen, easy walking distance to restaurants, tasting rooms, and shopping. Our racecourse is on Sonoma Creek.
Race day offers music, food, and activities for all , including the Junior Jack Race. The Jack to Jack Race has several heats during the day. Winners from each heat participate in the final race to determine the year's winner.
This event brings together friends, families, and supporters near and far, all of whom make up our community. Please enjoy the many activities while cheering on your favorite yacht.
Watching the race is great fun, but being in the race with your own personalized yacht is exciting.
All yachts are miniature replicas of Jack and Charmian London's SNARK. Each owner names their yacht and personalizes the sails.
Once you own your yacht, you can re-enter the race year after year, with a small entry fee. See More/About the Yachts for details.
