The Salish 200 is a 204 mile course around the San Juan Islands in the Salish Sea and down through Puget Sound around Vashon Island. The race was created in 2020 as a short handed event (limit of 5 crew) and is the longest race and one of the most challenging courses in the Pacific Northwest.

There are three scored courses:

Puget Sound 100: For boats that start off of Point Hudson and complete a circumnavigation of Vashon Island finishing off of Marrowstone Lighthouse.

San Juan 100: For boats that start off of Point Hudson and complete a circumnavigation of the San Juan Islands finishing off of Marrowstone Lighthouse.

Salish 200: For boats that start off of Point Hudson and finish off of Point Hudson after rounding the San Juans and Vashon Island.
