This coming weekend, the 71-foot yawl Windigo will be hoisted aboard a freighter headed for Sweden, where she will be captained by Magnus Johnson in the 125th Anniversary Regatta of the Royal Swedish Yacht Club. Ten other American yachts are shipping over, two are racing across the Atlantic, one is cruising over, and another is already there.
