Next week my family and I are embarking on the vacation of a lifetime! We head to Key West, Florida on Tuesday to meet up with the skipper and crew of the newest King 40 fleet "Soozal". Skippered by Dan Woolery and wife Susan, the team is compiled of many greats to include 2x Olympic Champions, World Class Tacticians who have won the Transpac, elite Sail Trimmers and an all around five star crew. To give you some background, The King 40 was just declared to be the boat of the year by Sailing World Magazine. Very cool!
You can check out the link at: http://www.sailingworld.com/ and then search for King 40. You will see the link to the actual article about 4 articles down entitled:"King 40: 2009 Overall Boat of the Year. I have also attached a photo of a King 40 (not the one that I am traveling with) so that you can get an idea of what will be talking about.
The race event in Florida begins on Jan 19th and is packed with multiple races per day clear through the 23rd.
So, I will be posting photos of the race and providing the background story on Souzal as well as highlights from the race days and hopefully a few interviews providing the teams have the time...It is a busy week for everyone to say the least! Enjoy the coverage and while you are here....Make a plan today to get Active!!
