Calling Alerion Express 28's!
Posted On: June 8, 2017

The Alerion Express 28 is one of the most beautiful “Spirit of Tradition” yachts cruising and racing today. There really isn’t a more exciting and just plain fun regatta than the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta, August 12th & 13th. Combine the two and you’ve got a WINNER! Ugotta do this Regatta!

This year, in the interest of fairness and pure Corinthian sailing, we are now offering the Alerion Express 28’s the opportunity to win “Class Trophies”. To “qualify” for the Alerion 28 Class, competitors will need to sail with:

  • A NEW CRF MKII certificate

  • 100% jibs (no overlapping genoas)

  • Standard mains (no full-roached or square-topped mains).

  • We’re shooting for as close to “One Design” racing as possible even though we know there are differences between models and model years.

You’re a very good sailor and you’re not afraid of goin’ for the gusto, so make the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta the event of your season. Let’s make a real race of it; tell other A28 owners. The more, the better.

If you don’t want to sail with the our encouraged sail plan, the CCYR is still very much open to your entry in the “Spirit of Tradition” section. No matter which way you want to go, you’ll still have an awesome weekend on the water.

A new CRF MK II rating certificate is required for 2017. Please apply here: CRF site

The 2017 Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta presented by Officine Panerai, the title sponsor of the Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge Circuit, will be held August 12th & 13th.

  • 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 mooring (First Come, First Serve)

  • A new CRF MK II rating certificate is required for 2017. We will assist anyone without a rating to easily secure a certificate.

A good regatta happens on and off the water and you can expect that the Corinthian Yacht Club along with Panerai will put on a good show. There will be a cocktail reception during registration Friday evening; cocktails, dinner, presentations and music on deck afterwards Saturday evening, and of course, more beverages and trophies after racing Sunday.

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