    About Vela...

    This will be the first BYC Mack for Vela. Our previous boat was dismasted and totaled several years ago in the St. Elmo’s Night Race. Boat searching finally ended with the purchase of Vela (For Cruising!). I’ve been racing the BYC Mack on “Knot Yours Too” out of PHYC since 2009 in which we’ve placed multiple times (first in class 2013). That terrific crew and owner (including a couple of Old Goats) persuaded me that we should do this year’s race on Vela, which has a few more creature comforts… Looking forward to another great time with hopes for fair winds and a good race.
