On the Move

Oakley Jones (Northeast USA Sales) reports: Harken is on the move again. After coming off another successful Key West Race Week the boys drove the Harken Tech Team trailer to Miami for the 2011 Miami Olympic Classes Regatta. 716 sailors from 53 countries arrived in Miami for a week of Olympic-caliber racing in the Fi…nn, 470, Laser, Elliot 6M, Star, 49er, RS:X boards, Sonar, 2.4m, and SKUDs. Harken was on the scene at the US Sailing Center providing support for all the sailors. Even Peter Harken got into the swing of things, jumping in to help one of the 470 sailors fix their spreader. While we were there I noticed a vintage 1978 Vanguard Finn sitting next to a new Devoti Finn. Peter (as Vanguard founder and president until the mid 80s) was surprised and delighted to see one of the boats he helped build was still active on the Finn circuit.

  1. Peter is still on the grindstone after all this time! Respect!

  2. Peter is a class act. You have to hand it to those midwesterners! Tough as nails.
