12 Meter Rig Check!

What's the view like from 92 feet above a 12 Meter yacht?  Here's Captain Cedar doing a rig check on Heritage before racing in Nantucket.  Yes, our captain does it all!  The 63 foot deck of Heritage looks mighty small from high above.  Talk about a "bird's eye view!"

A Beautiful Morning in Newport!

Last week, Heritage left Newport at sunrise on her way to Nantucket.  While most of us were still sleeping the Heritage team got to enjoy the beautiful skies and calm of early morning in Newport.  What a sight!  Check out these fabulous pictures Captain Duncan took.

Columbia Wins in Nantucket!

Columbia once again defeated her competition in Nantucket!  Last Thursday and Friday America's Cup winner, Columbia, competed in the 2013 Nantucket Regatta.  In the two day regatta there were four races.  Columbia got two bullets, a second, and a third.  This speedy performance made her the Nantucket Traditional 12 Meter Regatta Winner for the second year in a row.  Go Team Columbia!
