Alegria (4501)

Name Origin: "Alegria" is Spanish for happiness.

Crew Adventures: This boat's main mission is teaching new sailors more advanced sailing skills. About half the crew will be on their first Swiftsure. All of them have been part of the resurrection and campaigning of the J36 Harwar. Alegria is a far more comfortable ride, but Harwar's owner - Willie Wong will be working his usual magic on the foredeck. If raining, he can be referred to as a "wet willie".

Racing History: She's been on the Swiftsure race track a few times, including winning her division in 2015. A few Straits, a couple Vic Maui races and a Van Isle 360
