Early Spring Sail

MMA Offshore Sailing team aboard Temptress, a 1993 Taylor 41-foot custom racing sloop. Temptress was donated through MMA’s yacht donation program by John “Jay” Gowall of Jamestown, Rhode Island. The boat is new to MMA’s sailing program but is a well-known fixture in the New England racing scene. Gowall acquired Temptress in 2014 and had constantly upgraded, equipped, and successfully campaigned the boat. Prior to arrival in Castine, Temptress competed in eight Newport-to-Bermuda races with many podium finishes.
