Chesapeake Bay Sailing on a Chesapeake Sail Club Yacht
“See Hexe”, a 1984/2010 Pearson 34 keel/centerboard sloop designed by Bill Shaw and built by Pearson Yachts in Rhode Island is a fast, fully equipped cruising yacht. Her board up 4′ draft allow thin water sailing and gunk holing- she’ll be a favorite.
“See Hexe” recently completed a bow to stern refit that included a new set of North Radian sails, running and standing rigging, canvas and all systems! She continues to be updated throughout each season.
Over her life, so far, “See Hexe” has voyaged worldwide calling throughout the Florida Keys, Bahamas, Caribbean, Central and South America, Australia and New Zealand! “See Hexe” is a good lively sailor, seaworthy and comfortable for four. “See Hexe”, official number 679042, is a USCG documented vessel.
See Hexe is a great yacht for Sailing Chesapeake Bay!
“Ula” is a 1990 Freedom 32 designed by Gary Mull and built by Tillotson-Pearson for Freedom Yachts in Rhode Island. Freedom Yachts are noted for their ease of handling, turn of speed, self tacking jib, freestanding carbon fiber mast and high quality build.
We have been searching for a good club yacht and when we saw this Freedom, we knew we had found her. “Ula” is a celtic name meaning ‘Jewel of the Sea’ and that she is.
“It is possible to go very fast, indeed, even without crew or complication, if you have a boat that is designed for the purpose.” (Garry Holt in Practical Sailor).
Ula is a spirited sailor, with full cruising gear and will be a great yacht for the Chesapeake Bay!
