Winter break...

After 185 sails and 120 days on the water, Heritage is hauled out and ready for a well deserved winter vacation!

Thank you for a great season!

Thank you to all 12 Meter Charters' guests, clients and supporters.  The 2010 season was another great year of sailing at 12 Meter Charters.  We welcomed many private parties, wedding events, corporate groups and individual sailors aboard to experience the thrill of America's Cup, 12 Meter sailing in Newport, Rhode Island.   

Columbia, 12 US 16, leading the pack!
In 2010 Columbia was the boat to beat; she again dominated the 12 Meter racing circuit. Team Columbia won their class in New York Yacht Club's Annual Regatta in Newport, the Top Gun Regatta in Newport, the Edgartown Race Week in Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket Race Week and the Opera House Cup in Nantucket, and the Classic Yacht Regatta in Newport. For the sixth time she won the Ted Hood Perpetual Trophy for the best Classic 12 Meter racing season performance.  Congratulations to team Columbia!

Team Heritage at the OHC Awards Ceremony
Heritage’s season was especially fantastic because of her crew! Whether they were sailing in Nantucket, Hyannis or Newport, whether it was a corporate team-building group, public sunset sail or private party, the Heritage team received rave reviews for their EXCELLENT customer service.  Heritage also continued her winning ways at Nantucket's Opera House Cup - she has the fastest time around the race course and was again, 1st to Finish at OHC 2010!  

Here are just a few of the many wonderful comments we had from guests this season about the 12 Meter Charters’ team:
"Friendly staff, great experience, and FUN, FUN, FUN!!!! Thank you!!!!"
 "The Columbia captain, Kevin, and his crew (Charlie and Laura) were absolutely exceptional and made the trip incredible !!!!"
"This was our first Company outing; now I don't know how I'll ever be able to come up with an idea that will even be in the same ballpark as our experience was with the crew of Heritage. Thank you again for making our outing a huge success!"
“The crew had a great attitude. They made the overall experience great. It was the best sailing experience of my life!"
"Cedar & Jeffrey were excellent! They made it an experience we will not forget. They both have great people skills; they answered questions with passion. It was a beautiful day for sailing but it was Jeffrey & Cedar who made it special." 
Thank you again for another great year of 12 Meter sailing in Newport, Rhode Island. We look forward to welcoming you aboard in 2011!
