One of the most popular sailing courses in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island is the circumnavigation of Jamestown (aka Conanicut Island). Each year there are at least 15 different races that follow the course, however until 2012 there was no outright record holder. The Around Jamestown Record annually awards record setters in four different classes. Manuka sanctions and manages all record attempts. In addition, Manuka is responsible for marketing, sponsorship, PR and the annual prize giving ceremony.
