Tacking third

Wiltonian Andrew Norris’s 15 square metre yacht, Vixen, took third place in Classics Class Two for Part One of New York Yacht Club Race Week in Newport, R.I. The race week was presented by Rolex. Racing took place on Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island on Saturday and Sunday July 12 and 13. Mr. Norris’s Vixen was originally built in 1938 by Kungsörs Boatyard in Stockholm and in 2010 was the only boat to enter the Uffa Fox Challenge Race, a 1,000-nautical-mile race from Cowes, England, to Stockholm, Sweden. Vixen completed that race in 12 days.
