Watch this really awesome look at NY40 - Marilee's summer racing the New England vintage race circuit. This excites us as next year we hope that Rugosa, Rowdy, Chinook, and Marilee race together as one class to celebrate their centenaries.

Thanks to Halsey Fulton of Fish Hawk Films, Alison Langley Photography for sharing this cool video.

Marilee's a Herreshoff New York Yacht Club 40 foot class sloop built in 1926. She's is one of the few survivors of this "fighting forty" class, (watch a film on another NY40, 'Chinook' here), named for the boats' strength and excitement on the race courses of the early twentieth century.
