It has developed into a weekend of sailing, fun, food, music, and entertainment. All proceeds go to Special Olympics South Dakota to help those with handicaps.All types of boats get on the Lewis and Clark Lake to watch the race, tag along with the race, and to simply enjoy the water for the weekend. There are many fun and exciting things to do throughout the weekend.
