80th Running of Vineyard Race

Published on August 28th, 2014

Stamford, CT (August 28, 2014) – Stamford Yacht Club’s Vineyard Race is a classic American yachting event, a 238-mile course stretching from Shippan Point, through swirling currents, past Block Island, and on to the light tower at the entrance to Buzzard’s Bay, to return leaving Block Island to starboard 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. 96 boats are entered in this year’s running, starting August 29.
