10 Aldens Now Grace Sakonnet Harbor
There are now TEN active Aldens sailing and racing in Sakonnet: Augusta, Bachelor Button, Chiquita, Cutty Wow, Elisha, Honey Bee, JAVA, Old Bull, September Song, and Whistler. While nine of these boats are privately owned and raced, the Whistler, owned by SYC, may be sailed for a nominal usage fee by any member who has been cleared to sail her. Members can also take lessons in Whistler taught by members of the SYC staff.
In addition, there are often opportunities to crew on Saturday or Wednesday night races (see Race Committee).
