The Concordias are Coming! 1, 2, 3!
Posted On: June 25, 2013

Just to let you know... we have three Concordia Yawls - Dan Smith's "Eagle" and John Eide's "Golondrina", and Bruce Fenniken's  "Principia" - already entered into the 2013 Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta - presented by Officine Panerai (www.panerai.com). We know there are a few more of you out there that would love to make a run at some silver, so why not join them now.

The Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta is a terrific venue for the Concordia Yawl. This year's Corinthian Classic will be held August 10th & 11th. www.corinthianclassic.org

Why join us?

  1. In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Concordia Yawl, the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta is honoring the Concordia Yawl and all Hunt Designs at this year's event. Our featured speaker and honoree will be James H. "Sham" Hunt, son of Raymond C. Hunt.
  2. This is an excellent midway stop if you are cruising back from the events in Maine to the New Bedford Yacht Club for the 75th Anniversary Reunion.
  3. Our port will be in the middle of the Marblehead Maritime Festival.

Here's what you can look forward to:    

  • Spirited social events including this year's feature speaker, James H. Hunt
  • The racing is done in "Pursuit" format - unique, safe, fun - and will be sailed with NO Spinnakers 
  • Long reaching legs will be emphasized and beats will be minimal (Gentlemen do not beat.) 
  • Reasonable entry fee includes free mooring 
  • The Classic Rating Formula will be the standard for all boats and we will assist anyone without a rating to easily secure a certificate

This a rare opportunity for Concordia owners to gather and sail your boats in a Corinthian spirit while participating in toasting the Hunt name and lineage. We urge you now to enter this event or just plan to make dinner reservations for what will certainly be a fascinating and entertaining evening with "Sham". Last years' event honoring Halsey Herreshoff was sold out. 

Instructions to enter can be found on our website at www.corinthianclassic.org.
