What are Tartan 34 Classic Association Members up to Now?
- Grace Holt has written a number of excellent articles for the "Spinsheet" Magazine. Read her latest here.
- Rubicon (T34C # 1) will take part in the 2014 North Sea Week races http://www.marinepool.de/news-evenements/news/nordseewoche.html
- and (of course) will also do the toughest part of it: the “Round Skagen Race”, which is 510 nm or 3-4 days of continuous offshore racing. It may surely sound familiar to you, but I am still so damn crazy about this great boat that I decided to make the first in this race.

June 19-20 Lake Champlain Rendezvous - a Superior Weekend!
From the Commodore: "All, I believe that we have just witnessed the finest Tartan Rendezvous this country has ever conducted. This rendezvous is certainly the finest example of a sailing cruise and rendezvous the Tartan 34 Classic Association has ever had. Looking over the fleet on beautiful Tartan 34s, I could not have felt more proud and honored to be a part of this great group of Americans and Canadians. The planning, organization, site selection, food and down to earth friendship was beyond words. Mary Ina and I will cherish the memory of your gracious hospitality. I could only wish that Celebration was there to relish such a wonderful time.
"Thank you all so very much. You are the greatest. The food was terrific and the friendship will certainly be forever." - David and Mary Ina Bourdon
Be sure to read Joan Laundon's rendezvous report in the Regional News, and view the slide show here. The photos are wonderful!
