Read about the Wild Hair being dismasted! NEW!!!

Club Racing on West Point Lake, Georgia

The Wild Hair is a 25' 1987 MacGregor 25.  It is the cruising-est, racing-est, bluewater sailing-est Mac 25 that ever prowled the Keys, sailed the seas and aimed to please.  From Destin to Key West to Bimini, this Mac 25 has proven that MacGregor 25's are the most versatile trailerable sailboats in the world.  We tow it eight hundred miles one way, live on it for weeks, and still can't get enough.  The Wild Hair is an example of what you can do with an "older" boat.  Carpe Diem.
