Opportunity To Sail In The Gloucester Schooner Festival Race Aboard The Tyrone.

Al Bezanson and I are determined To GET YOU INVOLVED IN WHAT SHOULD BE ONE OF THE TOP EVENTS HELD ALL YEAR IN THIS FINE PORT!

The Gloucester Schooner Festival!

Joey…. TYRONE has a local connection as this schooner was designed by Sam Crocker of Manchester.  This year she will be sailing in her first Gloucester Schooner Race in the Medium Class with ADVENTURER, ARDELLE and LANNON.  She was built in 1939 at Simms Brothers in Dorchester, MA.  Last month she was featured at the Crocker Memorial Race in Manchester and here you see Harold Simms, owner Matt Sutphin and Sam Crocker’s great grandson Skip Crocker.  Harold was 14 when TYRONE was built.  He had us enthralled at the Crocker event with fond recollections of Sam Crocker and building TYRONE.

Matt recently began a chartering operation and is seeking passengers for the race and the coming and going to Gloucester.

    Regrettably TYRONE withdrew on 8/26 from this year’s Gloucester Schooner Race. At that time she had a commitment from only one paying passenger and hence must pusue other opportunities. TYRONE may be in Gloucester late 9/3 for the race to Provincetown on 9/4. Matt wants it to be known he hopes to be here next year.
