We're looking good...

It is Thursday and we are ready to defend our title. We have to secure a top seat in today's races in order to be a serious competitor come Friday.  We are looking good.



We were able to secure a spot from a friend of a friend's yacht so we should have a bird's eye view of the races.!!



This vessel is amazing.  Her name is E-Sea-Go 'N - just like the owners that we sailed with.



As mentioned, Soozal is a King 40 so we were able to gather up all of the King 40 owners and watch from sea as a group...It definitely beats trying to see from land and I am not going lie - I could get use to riding on one of these babies all the time.  We had a great view and got right up on Soozal, Hot Ticket and Act One (the three King 40 vessels within the IRC II division).









We ended up with a 1st and a 2nd today, and continue to be the boat to watch. We are all very excited about the big day tomorrow - but know that focus and smart sailing is what it is going to take to beat NGoni - a Mills 40 that seems to unsurpassable heading downwind.  With 2,200 less pounds - she is a force to reckon with. 






A solid team of the best bunch of guys I have met in a long, long time : ) Go get 'em tomorrow!!!!!





The Bow man up the mast






Helmsman - Dan Woolery and boat owner...Married to "Soozal" - literally, the boat is named after his wife Susan
