Our new boat arrives in Puget Sound in August which should give us almost four months to prepare for its first serious race, Winter Vashon, in December 2015.

We will continue learning the boat through the remainder of the South Sound Series in 2016, then Seattle Yacht Clubs spring Island Series and other, yet to be determined longer races. Oregon Offshore and Swiftsure will round out our preparation. Crew will include experience from Vic-Maui, Oregon Offshore and about a million Swiftsures between us. We are starting behind the eight ball compared to the experience the other crews have with their respective boats, but we are excited to get started!

Our goals are to be safe, have fun and compete hard!
