SLOOP AMERICA ON NAVY DAY (13 OCTOBER 2018)
From bow to stern: John, Don (trimming the chute), Ken and me. Steve is below (scotch?)
In March Gunvor and I sold INTREPID and purchased AMERICA (we renamed her); she is an 18 year old sloop, a J/105 of 34.5 ft. and a joy to handle. Very responsive. I’ve a Blue and Gold (of course) chute coming in November.
We are pictured preparing to pass the race leader WIND CHILD; we beat her to the finish line for line honors. Go Navy!
