I assembled this a few years ago because even I forget some of the boats and events I sailed. Still fond memories; and still making more.
The Panerai Classic Yacht Regatta 2018 concluded yesterday with an overall win for “Siren” a NY 32 owned by Peter Cassidy. We sailed friday, saturday and sunday.
3 days of near perfect weather.
I RACED THIS WEEKEND IN THE CLASSIC YACHT REGATTA, WHICH ALWAYS ATTRACTS ELEGANT BOATS WITH GRACEFUL LINES.
This regatta was a celebration not just of classic yachts but Olin Stephens 100th birthday. Just the number and variety of boats Olin designed that I had the privilege of sailing and the joy it gave me over the years, is more than a few. Olin’s name was synonymous with twelve meters and the defense of the America’s cup.
I am steering Peter Cassidy’s NY 32 “Siren” in the round the island race, we finished 2nd for the day and third overall. The New York 32 designed in 1935 was one of Olin’s designs.
