The Fleet gathers for dinner after racing.
Alerion 28's battle for position

There was no shortage of laughs and good times had by the Alerion Fleet this year at the Marblehood NOOD regatta.  Despite the heavy fog on day one we were still able to fit in 2 races.  The Alerion fleet was definitely the most comfortable group out of the  other 100+ boats while we waited for the fog to burn off.  The first race was taken by George Spiecker with “Sara Lee” taking second (sailed by Aleiron’s Scott Bryant).  The second race, although a short course was more exciting.  Everyone managed to be within a half-boat length for the start with George being 5 seconds early on the pin.  This made for an exciting up wind leg with all boats dueling for a position.  The competition stayed tight all the way to the end with Mark King taking the gun.  After a long day on the water, We gathered for our annual dinner at the Boston Yacht club where secrets and tactics were shared over drinks, food and of course a healthy dose of laughter!
