I have designed Naskeag to race in the High Flyer category of the Vintage Marblehead Class of racing sailboats.  The boat’s design was influenced by Ted Houk’s 1949 Rip Tide and Ains Ballantyne’s 1947 Arrow.

Under my sailing Naskeag has received two Second Place and one Third Place trophies in the last three Vintage Marblehead Class National Regattas.  Although Naskeag was designed as a competitive racing sailboat, that certainly does not preclude simply enjoying its beauty on a lake, pond, or park body of water for a pleasant experience of leisure sailing!
