The Notice of Race for the inaugural event alerted competitors that they were expected to carry an onboard “action camera” to record their adventure throughout the 24 hour race. Following racing, each boat turned in a chip that was sent to a production team spearheaded by Gary Jobson to be viewed and included in a wrap up video, both celebrating AYC’s first foray into the discipline as well as promoting future challenges in double-handed racing as a lead up to the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
From what we’ve heard there were moments of photographic brilliance and a share of anecdotes that shall remain on the cutting room floor, BUT a clear winner was crowned by Jobson’s team and members of the Event Committee, Paul and Kathy Parks. Congratulations to Mike Coe and Cate Muller who participated in the mixed-doubles ORC class on a Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300, Alchemist. Mike and Cate’s excerpts will be included in the video that will be available to view in the coming weeks. Coe and Muller will each receive a gift certificate for a Helly Hansen item.
