Rambler wins Block Island Race
The Storm Trysail Club Block Island Race (186 miles) is the first offshore event of the season for grand prix racing yachts as well as local yachts preparing for the upcoming Newport to Bermuda Race.

NEB based boats were on the podium again this year. George Davidís RP 90 Rambler was back for the eighth consecutive year. Conditions this year were considerably lighter than in 2013 when Rambler destroyed the elapsed time record for the race. Continuing her winning ways, Rambler won the elapsed time trophy again this year as well as the IRC fleet corrected time prize.

Other NEB based boats that collected silver in the Block Island Race included the Swan 56 King Daddy, Entropy the Tripp 41 and Rima the RP 55.

Gryphon Solo 2 was crowned the Atlantic Cup Champion
Congratulations to Joe Harris and his Gryphon Solo 2 team. Joe sailed south from NEB in late April. After race prep including a complete bottom job, Gryphon Solo 2 arrived in Charleston, South Carolina for the first leg of a three race event Atlantic Cup, Americaís Class 40 Grand Prix. After completing the three legs, Gryphon Solo 2 stood on top of the leader board. Well done Joe!

Caol Ila wins her class at Les Voiles de St. Barth
One of the most successful NEB built boats is IRC Mini Maxi, Caol Ila, the Mark Mills 68. Originally named Alegre, this seriously campaigned yacht has been winning races in northern Europe and the Mediterranean since her launch at NEB in 2009. Caol Ila recently won her highly competitive class at the Voiles de St. Barthís Regatta in the Caribbean. Congratulations Caol Ila!
