FIYC Hosts Dinghy Race by Volvo
July 12 @ 12:00 pm - July 13 @ 12:00 pm
The fourth annual Dinghy Race by Volvo Construction Equipment, formerly known as the SECOR Volvo Race, is back on July 12 and 13, 2018. The course is modeled after the Volvo Ocean Race, and allows C420 teams between the ages of 12 and 18 to sail a 20-mile race around Fishers Island Sound which delivers a diverse experience not found in a windward-leeward contest.
Beginning at the Niantic Bay Yacht Club in Niantic, CT, sailors will race 10 miles to Fishers Island. Following day one, there is a banquet and a full regatta campout at the Fishers Island School. Day two, the race concludes with the 10-mile journey up Mystic River to the Mystic River Shipyard in Mystic, CT.
