Yacht clubs are the custodians of the sport of sailboat racing. Though most of these clubs are private, they are enlightened enough to know that the sport is not furthered by exclusivity. At Stamford Yacht Club, the Vineyard Race, the Valeur-Jensen Stamford Denmark Race, the Weekend Series, the Stamford Overnight, the Northern Ocean Racing Trophy Series, the New England Lighthouse Trophy Series, the Double Handed Ocean Racing Trophy Series and Winter Frostbiting are open to ALL sailors and would-be sailors. The Club also hosts the Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race and the Junior Sailing Association of Long Island Sound's Dorade Trophy Regatta, and lends the support of its Race Committee boat and personnel to the Breakwater Irregulars Tuesday night series. We ARE sailboat racing in and around Stamford, as we have been since 1890.
