What's new with 12 Meter Charters?


Columbia sweeps the fleet!

Earlier this summer, Columbia not only won the Edgartown 12 Meter Regatta and the Nantucket 12 Meter Regatta, but she placed first in 9 out of 9 races! Watch out for Team Columbia in the upcoming Museum of Yachting Classic Yacht Regatta and 12 Meter North American Championships. She will be competing in both events in Newport this September.

Last weekend, Columbia and Heritage took first and second in the 12 Meter Division of the 38th Annual Opera House Cup. Heritage was also the first to finish and the fastest boat around the course! Congratulations to our speedy teams!

Not only are our boats speedy but our crew delivers exceptional service! Below are just a few of the rave reviews we have received this season:

"It was my first sailing experience and it was thoroughly amazing. The crew was friendly and answered questions readily."

"Meredith was delightful to deal with. The deck hands and captain onboard treated us with respect and professionalism. They made us feel very comfortable which allowed us to enjoy our experience immensely..."

"The crew had a great attitude. They made the overall experience great. It was the best sailing experience of my life!"

Thank you to everyone who has sailed with us already this season. To those who haven't - get on board before summer slips away! We are ready to sail with you!
