Training a crew for this size of boat and crew that has never sailed together before could be quite a story! The first few days, Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday are for training! Safe Passage Sailing is a company that prepares sailors for opportunities like this. I am anxious to see how we will perform! But we are in good hands!!
Captain Brian Thompson comes with a laundry list of Sailing records that he has broken over the years, the most recent was the Jules Verne Trophy for the fastest circumnavigation...45 days. This happened just a month ago! This guy loves sailing!
We will also be learning from Rich Sterns who also comes with a long list of accomplishments including Americas cup! These guys have their work cut out for them!! Stay tuned for my daily stories next week!
