When Alan Orr and his wife Monica bought their Hunter 35.5 in 1993, they had no idea they were beginning a new aspect of their sailing lives. "We expected to enjoy the boat to cruise around Long Island Sound and the nearby islands of Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and Block Island", said Alan. Which they indeed have done and enjoy immensely. But in Connecticut that summer, at the first Hunter sponsored rendezvous at Sailing Specialties, Orr’s Blue Bayou took first place, winning the Hunter Cup. They have been winning ever since.
