ABOUT THE EVENT


Marblehead Station's Creation to Honor A Sailing Hero from the Same Town

About the Ted Hood Regatta

The Ted Hood Regatta is the creation of the Storm Trysail Club's Marblehead Station. Ted Hood, a legend in sail making, yacht design, and a pioneer in the marine industry began his career in Marblehead. As a sailor, Ted won nearly every trophy from the SORC to The America's Cup. The Storm Trysail Club is honored to name this regatta for one of Marblehead's favorite sons, and one of our sports true legends. After the tremendous success of the inaugural 2017 event, the  "Hood Regatta" is on its way to becoming an East Coast Classic.

What you might not know...Have you ever done a "dip-pole jibe"? Have you ever used roller-furling? Have you ever hoisted a jib in a "head-foil"? Ted Hood was the person behind all of these innovations! He revolutionized the sail making industry with new materials, designs, and weaving technology. His yacht designs won every major ocean race, and his creativity helped advance nearly every aspect of our sport.
