Carina is a 48 foot aluminum hull sloop, built in 1969 by Paasch Marine, designed by McCurdy & Rhodes. Despite her age, she has stood the test of time and has been as successful in recent years as she was in her early days, with a legendary record in some of the worlds premier ocean races. With a full overhaul this spring, Carina has been outfitted with updated components and technology which have made her as light and fast as she has ever been, and as strong and safe as possible. Carinas 2011 campaign was designed to integrate a circuit of the worlds premier ocean races with a circumnavigation of the globe, beginning with the 2,975 mile Transatlantic Race 2011 from Newport, RI to the Lizard in England. In the following months we will be continuing on to Sydney, Australia to compete in the Sydney-Hobart Race, and finally back around to Newport, RI in time for the June 15th start of the Newport-Bermuda Race.
