How many Loopers

When we first started on the loop I asked “How many complete the Loop”. Answers came back at about 100 per year.

The Director of the AGLCA posted this note recently:

I’m often asked how many boats complete the Great Loop each year, and it’s always been right around 100, give or take. But, we’ve been able to pull more specific numbers from our database. Here are the specific number of boats that reported completion to us for recent years:

2010 – 92 completions
2011 – 97 completions
2012 – 87 completions
2013 – 71 completions
2014 – 86 completions
2015 – 76 completions

So just over 500 for the last 6 years. So it is a pretty small group that make this trip.
