Borrowing Graham's EC-22 again this year. Originally built in 06 for the 07 EC Dwsb and I got to take a ride on her at the finish in 07 with Graham and Wizard. It was after that that we decided to build our CS-20 Dawn Patrol so this boat has some great meaning for us.Once more again please. Planning to keep both masts full length for the whole race this time.

There are finishing touches being put on my latest understanding of fast folding sailboats. It is a catamaran, inflatable hulls, 16 ft long, 102 sq ft mainsail + gennaker. Much prettier than the previous version, better sailor and, I hope, as reliable. The boat still needs to cross Atlantic, which we will do soon, as a luggage, of course.There is a huge drawback in doing Ultimate Florida Challenges. I’ve been missing all Key Largo festivities. I hope to have it this time. Looking forward to meeting old friends and being introduced to new ones.
