The 75th Vineyard Race

 

On Friday, September 4, 2009, SYC held the 75th anniversary of it's classic Vineyard Race — one of the premiere yachting events on the East Coast. Challenging yet family-friendly, the annual Labor Day race is a 238-mile long distance course across Long Island Sound, past Block Island, around Martha's Vineyard and back.

This 15-minute movie brings together several sailors recalling their stories from the race, including Gary Jobson's experience racing the Vineyard with Ted Turner, and the 2006 race when Hurricane Ernesto became a last-minute player in the competition.

Approx. 15 mins.
