Dorade was entered in this year’s Herreshoff Classic Regatta scheduled for 26-28 August.
Due to the possible approach of Hurricane Irene, the Regatta organizer, the Herreshoff Marine Museum / America’s Cup Hall of Fame has taken the prudent step of canceling this year’s Herreshoff Classic Regatta for this coming weekend.
The Regatta organizer wanted to ensure that all participants have time to make adequate preparations for the safety of their classic yachts and themselves.
The 2012 Herreshoff Classic Regatta is scheduled for 24-26 August and the Museum looks forward to the return or classic yachts to the Museum.
