The Following is a message from the Marblehead IOD Fleet about the upcoming events:

We are very excited that 3 boats from Fishers Island have decided to enter the New England Challenge celebrating the 75th Jubilee of the IOD. That brings the number of entrants visiting Marblehead with boats to 8. This really helps create an exciting and inclusive regatta. We now have 5 boats from Nantucket and 3 from Fishers Island. We'd like to encourage all owners who live within practical shipping distance of Marblehead to be inspired by this enthusiasm from a few and seriously consider coming to the event. After all 75 years only comes around once! We welcome all boats, all fleets, all rig types. The more boats we get the more attractive the regatta becomes. Please come, celebrate 75 years with as many boats on the line as we can muster!


If you cannot come but your boat can, then that would allow us to offer her  for charter to members of a more distant fleet. We have a strong desire to be able to welcome as many sailors from around the world as possible and make this celebration representative of the entire membership of IOD fleets worldwide.

Best wishes from the Marblehead fleet.
