Seven Swans participated in the 10th Annual North American Rally to the Caribbean (NARC) this past November. The rally started in 2000, when the skipper organizing the migration of the Swan Charter fleet from Jamestown RI to Anse Marcel Sint Martin, invited other boats to join them after the Caribbean 1500 abandoned the Newport start and moved to Norfolk. This year there were also five boats from Canada and one Dutch entrant, the Swan 46 Blue Fin. Fado Fado was flying the Irish flag, (and ballasted with 18 kegs of beer) although the owner has been living in NYC for many years. The Caribbean 1500 had only one Swan, but a winner with Clover III on top of Division One.
