For lovers of classic sailing yachts, there is often nothing more wonderful than a classic yacht regatta. The yachts are beautiful, the sailing is thrilling, and the sailors from all the yachts are among the most interesting people one could ever hope to meet.

In 2017 Eros raced in the Antigua Classic, the Nantucket Race week/Opera House Cup, and the Newport Classic Regatta in Newport Rhode Island. In all cases guests were on board and part of the sailing and social action. They were made up of professional, occasional and novice sailors. Regardless of their experience or age, they all professed to have loved the experience. And Eros won a few of the races.
