About This Activity

Started in 2006, The Endurance Race was formulated as a non-traditional sailing regatta and charity event. The race consists of one continuous 24 hour race for one-design racing boats. Competitors compete on a one mile triangular course and can switch out crews as often as they wish, or sailors can choose to tackle the challenge for the entire duration (see The Shackleton Club below). Changing out crews keeps racers fresh, but costs precious time at the dock.

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. Top teams push hard the entire time, with the first and second place finish one year decided by one boat length. Racing competitively for 24 hour requires planning and a different mindset than the traditional 40-60 minute race format.


Do you think you have what it take to race for the entire 24 hours*? If so, you can join the ranks of the Shackleton club. Many have tried, but only a few have beat the changing winds, hot sun, cool night, and sleep deprivation to complete the entire race.

All crew members must complete a minimum of 20 hours of sailing (postponement times excluded) and must be racing at the start and finish of the event to qualify.
