Sail Like A Dane


The Valeur-Jensen Stamford Denmark Race is held annually on the first Sunday after Labor Day. The 52nd race will be held on Sunday, September 10, 2017.

Attracting both performance sailors and the more occasional racers, the Denmark Race remains one of the largest day races on the Long Island Sound.  Registration is on www.yachtscoring.com. The fun is both on the water and off, with two race parties: a dinner the night before, and cocktails, Danish beer and snacks on the SYC lawn after the race, in connection with the awards ceremony.

A unique collection of silver trophies has been donated over the years by corporations and individuals with ties to Denmark and Stamford.  These trophies continue to be awarded to the winners in each division.
