Teamwork! Teamwork! Teamwork!
People are always looking for ways to connect with each other. Have you ever considered the advantages of connecting with friends and co workers while racing aboard a sailboat in a regatta?
It’s a hands-on experience that’s memorable for all the right reasons: sun, fun, focus, and a dose of sweat.
Any great racing trophy, plus the celebrating that goes with it, isn’t achieved without teamwork.
Here’s how writer and racer Martha Blanchfield recorded her experience aboard Nicholson fleet member EROS, the 115-foot schooner that’s a regular stunner on the racing circuit in the Caribbean and New England:
“Classic yacht racing aboard a vessel of EROS’s size is a magnificent experience. In the New England area, there are lots of classic yacht events, but very few classic yachts with the capacity to welcome aboard large groups of charter guests craving hands-on regatta action. EROS, courtesy of her sheer size and design, easily accommodates and fascinates a full complement of zealots, from shellbacks to novice sailors. Take it from me, you don’t want to miss this experience.”
If you want to experience the magnificence of racing aboard EROS in 2019, opportunities abound in the Caribbean and in New England.
