“Dorade sailed very well in the race this weekend, and I received numerous comments, including from Dennis Conner, on how well she sailed the course,” said 2017 Yesteryear Regatta Chairman Greg Stewart. Stewart, a naval architect has been working with Dorade since 2007 and he has also been frequent crew member aboard her. “For this year’s regatta we secured a fleet of 31 boats, racing in six classes. The conditions were perfect for all the boats and there was a nice mixing of boat types in the results.”
Next up on the team’s calendar is the SoCal 300, which starts May 29th in Santa Barbara, followed by the Newport Beach Wooden Boat Festival, June 10. From there the yacht will ship to Australia to kick start their “Dorade Down Under” Campaign.
