MHOR 2017 on MacIntosh

We are doing the Marblehead to Halifax Ocean Race again this year on MacIntosh.


It is 363 nautical mile race from Boston to Halifax.
The race runs even other year, and we have done it in 2013 and 2015.

Here is a digital print of our track in 2013:

We came in 2nd place in our division by 20 seconds that year (3rd overall):


Boston Yacht Club is located in historic Marblehead about 30 minutes north of Boston.

We will have seven on board
  • Durk Steigenga
  • John (Durk's brother)
  • Luca (John's friend)
  • Micheal
  • Kevin
  • Me
  • Heather (Nova Scotia)

Durk and his wife Linda spent the last week delivering MacIntosh to Marblehead:

The three Ontario boys Michael, Kevin, and I will be driving overnight to Boston.
We will provision the boat on Saturday

The race starts on Sunday at 12:55pm.

We should be finished by Tue night or Wed morning.
There are over 80 boats registered.
Be sure to track our progress!

Linda will drive my truck back to Halifax, so we can head home after that in time for the Lake Ontario 300 on ACE which starts on Sat Jul 15.
