When grain was shipped across the ocean, whoever made it to port first would get the best price on their cargoes. Sailing ships would race the weather, the ocean currents, and each other to beat the odds. This lecture discusses the history of these long-haul races and provides information on the Northeast Grain Race, to be held on the Hudson River in the spring of 2022, including rules and how to participate.
