Shields Fleet, BYC

Welcome to the Shields Fleet 10 page.  The Shields One Design Association recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary, and Shields Fleet 10 from the Beverly Yacht Club, Marion, MA has been there right from the beginning.  We are proud of our history with five of the original 20 built Shields still racing out of Sippican Harbor.  Fleet 10 also consistantly sends participants to the Shields National Regatta, often finishing top 5, including multiple Class Champions.  It all starts at home though, so please join us for local racing & everything Buzzards Bay has to offer.  There is no better view than from a Shields!
