Warrior 53' gets new sails thanks to Bainbridge International, USMMA SF, and sailmaker Tyler Hadden

The countdown to the Chicago Mackinac Race has begun!

As part of Warrior Sailing’s preparation for the race on the Great Lakes, sailmaker Tyler Hadden has crafted new sails for the Warrior 53’ using donated materials courtesy of Bainbridge International and supported by the United States Merchant Marine Academy Sailing Foundation.

For last year's race, the Warrior crew made the most of the sail inventory onboard, working with a short hoist main off of RP58 'Serena' and spinnakers off of a TP52. Having sails built for the boat will go a long way in sailing efficiently on and off the wind.

Over 220 hours went into this vital project. Warrior 53' is now equipped with a new main, jib, and spinnaker. The Warrior 53' is efficiently rigged and ready to work as hard as our Warriors.

Special thanks to:

The Warrior Sailing Program is dedicated to maritime education for wounded, ill, and injured service members of the US Military. Getting military service members on the water can provide physical, mental, and emotional therapy for a variety of injuries and illnesses. Sailing is an outlet to cope with the long term effects of PTSD, brain injury, amputation, paralysis, and nerve damage. It’s also an exciting way for our Warrior Sailors to express their most natural abilities: teamwork and competitive drive.
