Welcome to the Home Page of Highlander Fleet 47 in the Westerly RI / Pawcatuck CT area. We are dedicated as a group to having fun and improving our sailing skills. Newcomers are welcome with open arms. If you would like to join us there are several ways to get on the water. You can crew with one of us or you can try out a loaner boat. We usually gather after the racing at the Avondale Boat Yard in Westerly RI for hotdogs. Contact our Fleet Captain Mark Steinmetz if you are interested in joining us. firstname.lastname@example.org
October 24th - The newest member of Highlander Fleet 47! Jeff, the road warrior, went out to Ohio to pick up "Nessie" for John Yanusas. We all hope that she turns out to be a real monster on the race course and look forward to racing with John and his family next spring.

January 24, 2012 - Deep in a secret location (Area 69) in Westerly a highlander is taking on a new life. As you can see from the picture, several alien looking fellows have been rehabilitating Rick Browns old boat Mayhem. It is rumored that they are using recently uncovered alien technology to make it stiffer, lighter and faster than it was before. These sightings seem to occur most frequently on Tuesday Nights. There is a rumor going around (if I can get it started) that Jeff is preparing an article for the Highlander magazine and website. (photo credit Mac Cooper)
