Mystic Seaport Dyer Dhow Derby

October 13, 2018

The Dyer Dhow Derby is an annual regatta held in honor of the yacht clubs, sailing associations, and individuals who have donated to or supported the Dyer Dhow fleet of more than 50 boats at Mystic Seaport. The fleet serves the Museum’s Joseph Conrad Overnight Summer Sailing Camp and Community Sailing Programs.

The 68th annual Dyer Dhow Derby will be held October 13, 2018. This event is open to those who have supported the fleet and we encourage organizations and individuals to create teams. The Derby will include Junior, Men’s, Women’s, Double’s, and “Quarter Ton” races. The goal is to have all of the Dyer Dhows racing as part of this event. All races will be held on the Mystic River across from the dock at the north end of the Museum grounds closest to Latitude 41° Restaurant & Tavern.

Registration is free. Come race a Dyer Dhow and show your support!
