"Fancy Boy" heading towards the finish line
Alerion Express 28 on the race course

We had a great time at the Vineyard Cup this weekend!  With several 38’s and a 28 in attendance it was hard to not see an Alerion sailing. AE38 hulls 17 and 18 and AE38 yawl  # 8 had great results in division two.  #8 took first place in the PHRF non spinnaker group with 17 and 18 coming in fifth and sixth place.  Not bad for 17 and 18 considering this was their first time out on the race course!  Most importantly, we all had a great time and couldn’t have asked for bettter conditions.  Vineyard Haven is a spectacular setting for a regatta; besides the favorable conditions and beautiful scenery there are many classic boats of all sizes to see.  The classic division of the Vineyard Cup brings a whole host of beautiful wooden boats that are hard to ignore.  Just another reason why this event is so much fun!
