Gloucester, Massachusetts and Lunenburg Dory Races

On Saturday, July 13th, competitors from sister cities Gloucester, Massachusetts and Lunenburg, Nova Scotia boarded dories and raced on a course in Gloucester Harbor as they have for the past 72 years. 

This friendly competition, rooted in the proud fishing legacy of both ports, features strength, athleticism, strategy, and teamwork.

Most importantly, it showcases the enduring international bond between these two communities that has grown stronger over the years and continues to bring people from many generations together as a shining example of the type of friendship and partnership our world needs.

Thanks to the Gloucester International Dory Racing Committee and the Lunenburg Canadian Dory Racing Association for the dedication and hard work it takes to keep this tradition alive. 

The competition next moves to Lunenburg Harbor on August 24th.

You can learn more about this incredible tradition at the Gloucester International Dory Racing website:  

Above are some photos from the award ceremony and the races.
