Why I race the Vineyard — Peter Millard

RUDI - 08-09-14The Vineyard is a tradition for many. We’ve decided to celebrate that with occasional profiles of Vineyard veterans, all members of the Buzzards Society. We continue with Peter Millard.

How many Vineyards have you done? Twenty-Five (25+) Plus. Have lost count over the many years. First was 1970.

Describe in one word what makes the Vineyard so appealing? The challenge.

What is the most difficult part of racing The Vineyard? Hitting the tides just right at the exit from and re-entry into Long Island Sound and being lucky enough to carry a favorable breeze throughout the Race.

What’s your favorite part of racing The Vineyard? Finishing and knowing that you just won the NORT.
