There are lots of great things about doing the WNR. We build some great relationships and have a lot of laughs. We love being competitive and challenging ourselves to do our best.
However, the reason I do the WNR is to see my kids having the time of their lives. An example:
LinGin does some shark fishing :)
Those kids were having the time of their lives on the way home from the race. It started with the three of them sitting on the boom going downwind on the way home. David decided it would be cool to jump off the boom into the water and grab the mainsheet in the process. It worked like a charm and the girls followed.
The rest of us on the crew couldn't stop laughing. That was such a blast and that's why I do WNR and always will!
