Something special is taking shape along the southeastern Connecticut shoreline for the world of youth sailing, and you do not want to miss this.  In just its third year, The SECOR Volvo Race is giving young sailors between the ages of 12 and 18 a racing experience normally reserved for world-class skippers.

The race has been modeled to be a one of a kind youths race that closely resembles the prestigious Volvo Ocean Race. Just like the big leagues, the race around Fishers Island Sound comes complete with live-streaming video footage shot by drones, online access to real-time GPS race tracking, on board reporters competing for a new WASP action cameras, a VIP spectators boat and, of course, top-notch sailing.
