Stamford YC Vineyard Race @ Stamford Safe Harbor | Stamford | Connecticut | United States

First signal will be at 1200 Friday with the start at Flashing Red Bell “32” (The Cows) off Stamford Harbor.

Labor Day weekend’s Vineyard Race is a classic American yachting event. This 238-mile course stretches from Shippan Point through the swirling currents of Plum Gut past Block Island, and on to the light tower at the entrance to Buzzard’s Bay. Once reached, sailors return by leaving Block Island to starboard en route to the finish in Stamford Harbor.

Begun in 1932, it has attracted the finest sailors and fastest boats for nearly 80 years, and its intricacies and challenges bring them back time after time. Those who are successful nearly always credit local knowledge of these tricky waters and a good deal of luck.

The Vineyard Race was described in Yachting Magazine as, “The greatest distance races of the world have several things in common – a challenging course, competitive fleets and an interesting array of famous yachts. By those standards, the Stamford Yacht Club’s Vineyard Race rates close to the top. Like a miniature Fastnet, the Vineyard has a combination of coastal cruising, where currents play a big role, a stretch of ocean sailing, and a mark to round – the Buzzards Bay tower – before returning.”

  1. Alliance Stamford Vineyard Race Team,

    We updated CM for the delivery to Stamford (depart 0900 Wed 1 Sept) and Return Monday 6 Sept 0500.   I put Roland on for round trip and Mark for return.  Please update if that is not correct. Others let us know if you are interested in delivery.  Boat will be docked at Stamford Safe Harbor.  Crew updated in YS for race so sign waiver.  Historically a great post race party at Stamford YC Sunday evening so consider joining/staying.
