North Sails Vists the ISC Race Team
Special thanks go out to Kerry Poe of Wyckam Canvas, Oregon's North Sails loft, http://wyckam.com/. This past Monday Kerry gave a pre-race lecture to the race team about timing racing starts. He then joined them on the water to observe and give pointers to the crews. After the race they all gathered and talked about how sail the Santana 20s for 2 hours. An incredible experience for all those involved. Again a big thanks to Kerry for taking his night to spend with us!
