ONE OF A KIND

The Dinghy Race is back for its 5th edition on August 7th thru the 9th, 2019.  The one-of-a-kind race is modeled after The Ocean Race (formerly the Volvo Ocean Race), and allows participants to sail a 20-mile boat race around Fishers Island Sound in an experience normally reserved for older world-class skippers.

Just like the big leagues, the race around Fishers Island Sound comes complete with live-streaming video footage shot by drones, online access to real-time GPS race tracking, onboard reporters with action cameras, and of course, top-notch sailing.

Take a look back at last years edition from both on and above the water with drones and our detailed tracker! Facebook Link  @thedinghyrace and Trac Trac Tracker Link
