#ThrowBackThursday - 12 Meter Sailing in Nantucket

Here's a throwback to last month's Opera House Cup Race in Nantucket.  On Sunday, August 17, both Columbia and Heritage joined the fleet of wooden boats sailing in the 42nd Annual Opera House Cup.  Check out these fabulous shots taken by Sarah Carothers as the fleet sailed by Great Point beach, located on the northern tip of Nantucket.  

The 12 Meter Charters Team is looking forward to sailing and racing in Nantucket's Opera House Cup again next year!  Are you interested in sailing with us in Nantucket?  Contact us for details aboard how to get on board!
