Peter Primont, owner of Alerion 38 #17, lives his life driven by his passions. When it was time to ignite his passion for sailing, this Long Island native knew exactly where to turn.
Until three years ago, when Primont wasn’t managing his successful music publishing business, he was spending his time playing golf. Since catching the sailing bug and purchasing an Alerion Express 38, “Fancy Boy,” he has yet to return to the golf course.
This past summer, Primont and his wife Sheila sailed to Martha's Vineyard and competed in the Vineyard Cup and grabbed 6th place overall, defeating serveral go-fast sailboats along the way. After the race, they enjoyed a leisurely cruise back to their hometown in Manhasset, Long Island.
Pearson Marine Group informs us that serveral of their Alerion 38s from the New York area are already planning on attending the 2011 Vineyard Cup, to be held on Martha's Vineyard July 15th - 17th. For a recap of the 2010 Vineyard Cup, click here. For more Alerion news, click here.
