The Wianno Senior is a 25 foot gaff rigged sloop built since 1914 on the Southern shores of Cape Cod (Massachusetts). Designed for the difficult waters of Nantucket Sound, a stretch of sea characterized by strong winds and tidal currents and frequent unmarked sandy shallows. Wianno Senior with her elegant lines, centerboard, low freeboard, wide stern and ample cockpit is still a boat of great fascination on which whole generations of sailors have raced and continue to race.
