This summer I raced on Long Gone, a 42′ Morgan sailboat. She is based at Davis Island Yacht Club. The club has a great policy of letting the general public help crew the boats during the Thursday races. I’ve seen 60 boats out there at one time. All you have to do is walk up to the bartender before the race and say you want to help crew a boat. That’s what I did and the next thing I knew I was on the Long Gone.
The final results are in and Trophies handed out. Long Gone did very well.
- FIRST PLACE- Spring Series
- FIRST PLACE- Fall Series
- FIRST PLACE- Overall for 2012
Since I’m moving back North, I won’t get to participate in an entire season. HOWEVER, I am planning to come back for a long weekend sometime when it’s still cold up North and it’s warm down here and catch a Thursday race.
So here are some pictures I took while on the boat. Video at the bottom. I think the last two pictures are pretty awesome. Good times…
Here is a video where we pull a fast move and pass another sailboat. I think that’s Nick in the background sounding pretty pleased with the maneuver.
