Success at ‘Round The Island Race!

July 23, 2013

The conditions could not have been better last weekend for this event sponsored by the Edgartown Yacht Club on Martha’s Vineyard!  The winds were consistently 22 – 28 knots for the buoy races and the actual RTI race on Saturday.  The Alerions were in good company: Swans, Sabres, J122s, J120s, and Little Harbor to name a few.  There were also two Navy 44’s present that were built by the same craftsman that build Alerions.  The IRC division attracted a few TP52s and the impressive “Rambler”, a Reichel Pugh 90′.

As always the Alerions did well!  “Iniki” an Alerion Express 38 won its double-handed division while another 38 took second in the PHRF non-spinnaker division.  Full results here.
