Get ready for the Endurance Race – the 24-hour dingy race just for one-designs. The Endurance Race is proud to support the Wounded Warrior Project and partner with the Fallen 15. Both organizations provide assistance to wounded warriors and help them reintegrate with the community.
Beginning August 30 at noon and running for a full 24 hours, sailors compete on a one mile triangular course and can switch out crews as often as they wish, or choose to tackle the challenge alone.
Started in 2006, The Endurance Race was formulated as a non-traditional sailing regatta and charity event. The racing is serious. While the event supports this years charity, The Wounded Warrior Project, there is no “buying” a better rating or an extra lap through donations.
This year the race will be at Leatherlips Yacht Club on O’Shaughnessy Reservoir. The race alternates between Leatherlips Yacht Club (even years) and Hoover Sailing Club (odd years). Both clubs are located on reservoirs in Central Ohio and offer ideal conditions for hosting such a race. The flat water and closed course allow the race to be run overnight safely.
