Skipper Dave

It was another historic moment when Dave became the first ever American skipper of the Abaco Rage. He did such a good job that one of the other racers told me that she thought that it was Stafford (the usual skipper) at the helm. The Rage was first over the start line which is very commendable in a fleet of 11 boats trying to get to the same spot at the same time. Conditions were marginal for this wooden boat with the huge sail area, but they completed the race and were 5th over the finish line, but came in 7th overall after handicaps were calculated. Still, what an experience and everyone worked together well and had a great time. What an honor for Dave and I couldn't be more proud of him!
