This Is Not Drill!

The Hope Town Sailing  Club’s S. Yeardley Smith’s Trophy Race was filled with excitement thanks to the Abaco Rage and its crew. The winds were 15-18 knots making for a sight to see at the jibe mark, especially when a crew member fell off the boat! Time for a quick man overboard retrieval (hopefully we will get a report on his experience so I can post it!). During all this, the rudder became entangled in the race mark anchor line, with Richard Cook coming to the rescue by jumping overboard to free it up. This all resulted in lots of 360 circles being made. In the end, even after everything that happened, the Rage with Stafford Patterson as skipper, came in third on corrected time. That means that there’s a chance that without the man overboard, they may have won the race. Then again, it wouldn’t have been so exciting out on the race course, and what fun would that be?
