Racing with the competition: Onboard Chinook

Why not take a sail this morning. Grab your coffee and hit ‘full screen’ because you’re coming for a ride onboard ‘Chinook,’ a NY40 designed by Captain Nat Herreshoff. The restoration of Chinook was completed after over 60 months and lots of labor.  Their blog followed the entire journey and gives some great insight into the long restoration and the passion and reverence the skipper Jono and crew have for the amazing design and craftsmanship that went into Chinook back in 1916.

She was restored in Tunisia, which, as they explain was not without challenges for a major rebuild.   Check out the blog and take a ride on this beauty at a Classic Yacht regatta in Cannes. What a thrill, if even from a seat at your computer. Enjoy!
