The Barbados Cruising Club and sponsors of the Mount Gay Rum Round Barbados Race were delighted to welcome Hasley C. Herreshoff to Barbados where he raced on board Schooner Elena in the 75th Anniversary 2011 Mount Gay Rum Round Barbados Race that took place on January 21st 2011.

Halsey C. Herreshoff is President of Herreshoff Designs, Inc of Bristol, Rhode Island. He is the grandson of Captain Nathanael G. Herreshoff and son of Sidney and Becky Herreshoff, founders of the Herreshoff Marine Museum, which Halsey also served as president of for nearly forty years. Halsey is a graduate of the Webb Institute with a degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering and holds a Masters Degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. As a naval architect, he has prepared designs from which 10,000 boats have been built. An avid sailor, Mr. Herreshoff has competed as Bowman or Navigator in four 12- Meter America's Cup Series between 1958 and 1983 and in 2010 was inducted into the America's Cup Hall of Fame. He remains active in design, construction, and sailing of yachts through his company, Herreshoff Designs. He is a civic leader having been Chief Executive of the Town of Bristol and continues to serve on the Bristol Town Council.

A Class Racing Schooner Elena, launched in 2009 was built in Spain under the watchful, eye and experienced hand of Steve McLaren, a tremendously knowledgeable and respected superyacht captain. Captain McLaren also built and ran the beautiful Bruce King designed 120 foot sailing yacht Alejandra for a number of years and then turned to classic yachts by taking the helm of 'Eleonora'. Steve’s experience along with the owner’s enthusiasm will showcase the elegant Sailing yacht Elena at a number of regattas throughout the Caribbean this season. She was an incredible sight as she raced around Barbados on January 21st beating the schooner record of 10 hours 20 minutes set by her old rival Captain Lou Kennedy's 'Sea Fox' back in 1936.
