Award Winning Boats, Rigging Together in Marblehead

We were busy rigging up a C.W. Hood 32 at the Eastern Yacht Club recently and were enjoying the camaraderie of our friends aboard the neighboring J/70 that was also about to be launched. Photographed together, we realized that we had two award-winning designs side-by-side! On the left is Sailing World and Sail Magazine‘s pick for Daysailer of the Year in 2011: our own C.W. Hood 32. In the photo, C.W. Hood Yachts‘ Scott Webber is getting her ready to launch. On the right is Sailing World Magazine’s pick for Boat of the Year 2013: the J/70, with our friend Jack Attridge on board.

Two award-winners soon to be out racing on Marblehead Harbor this summer — now that is something to look forward to!
