Columbia Wins in Nantucket

Earlier this month, Columbia sailed from Newport to Nantucket for her annual August trip to compete in the Nantucket 12 Meter Regatta.  Our America's Cup winner, has won this regatta every year since 2010.  This year, the speedy Columbia, continued the winning streak.  But not only did Team Columbia win the regatta, they won every race in the regatta!  Here are some great pics of the winning team.

12 Meter Charters Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge

Heritage's crew member, Erin, took one for the team and completed the #ALSIceBucketChallenge last weekend.  Of course, she completed the challenge like any good 12 Meter crew member would...while sailing to Nantucket aboard Heritage!  Check out the video and great shots Captain Duncan took capturing the moment.  It looks like Captain Gus had a bit too much fun dumping the water on her head!

Newport After Dark

We love sailing in Newport by day but Newport is beautiful after sunset too!  Here are just a few pictures of Newport after dark.  Captain Duncan took shots of the sparkling, nighttime views from our 12 Meter Charters' office on Bowen's Wharf, from onboard Heritage, and from Newport harbor.  Make sure you include exploring Newport after dark during your visit to our beautiful city-by-the-sea!
