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 event takes place in Glen Ellen, beginning at the Jack London Lodge, Creekside. The yachts are replicas of Jack London's SNARK. Either yachts or dinghies will be raced, depending on the Creek's water level. There are several heats during the day. Winners from each heat participate in the final race to determine the year's winner. During the race, there are various activities, including a Wine Trolly between the Lodge and the Village, entertainment, live music, food and wine. Attendance is free to all.
First 5 winning yachts in their heats received a lei.*
First, Second, and Third in Final Race received ribbons.
Winner of the 2023 Jack to Jack will have their name on the Jack to Jack perpetual plaque.
* Leis are in remembrance of Jack London’s Snark’s first port in Honolulu.
