  1. Saw Big Ti starting the Marblehead Halifax race. What a boat! Can't wait to see all of them at the Classic in Newport in August!

    1. Saw Ticonderoga in Bermuda three weeks ago -- always a little flutter in the heart and head to spot her.

  2. Recently read the article, Racing the Storm, from the Smithsonian Magazine. Photos brought it to mind. Thought I would share

  3. Spartan has an extra mast stored in a shed nearby in case her current one ever breaks or needs replacing. What a thing of art!
