Herreshoff 12 1/2 Is Waiting for Spring

Most of the sailing in the West is done during the 12-month season along the sunny coast of California. The Pacific Northwest is more seasonal, while the sailors from the Sierra to the Rockies are limited to the summer as severe winter weather shuts down the high-altitude lake sailing. While visiting our friends John Marsh and Anne Winton in Idaho over the holidays, we found their Herreshoff 12 1/2 Angelina patiently waiting out the winter in the barn outside.

Anne’s father, Chuck Winton, successfully raced both his Nelson Marek 41 Chimo and J/105 Chimo on San Francisco Bay in the ’80s and ’90s.

Meanwhile, on San Francisco Bay, the packed 2022 Racing Season started on January 1. You can see the whole year’s calendar here.
