Turn of the century breakthroughs in IRC yacht racing highlighted the talents of Irish Yacht Designer Mark Mills. With numerous successful smaller designs Mills collaborated with yachtsmen Andy Soriano to create ALEGRE. This collaborative effort, continuous updating and desire to achieve the best would create the most impressive team Mediterranean yacht racing had ever seen. With an owner driver, mostly Corinthian crew and the diligence of a designer and captain to keep the yacht up to date season after season ALEGRE tuned all heads.... Flash forward, in 2015 and with one short term interim owner, the Corinthian Sailing Team from the NorthEast Coast of the United States took the reins and created a set of goals that would leave most breathless….. This five year, globetrotting race program left the bucket overflowing with silverware and, for those who created the list, every box checked!!!
