What do you do for fun?
For over 20 years I raced on sailboats – for 15 of them on a J24 that I co-owned – and we earned many trophies. Ok, so we raced a one-design boat in a PHRF class, but what the heck, we still won! I looked forward to those Wednesday nights on the Magothy River with such enthusiasm. The camaraderie amongst the crew was incredibly special, and we nailed the boat handling every week. Ok, so we may have called some bad tactics a few times, but that’s par for the course. Pregnant with twins I was out there up to my due date and when the babies came, I lined up the babysitter and made sure I didn’t miss a tack!… it was date night for heaven’s sake. Foredeck was my specialty…a bit nerve wracking, but fun. However, if you ask me, the best part about the evening was the gorgeous sunset sailing home from the race – just breathtaking. I hope to get back to sailing soon.
