It’s said that three is the magic number, and given the way the world has aligned it’s primary colors, circus rings, dimensions, blind mice and musketeers who can argue? Like the men in a tub that came before them, Team Blackfish have stuck with that time tested numerology and assembled a set of trinities all their own making:

 Three generations: Age 72, 54, and 26 their crew of three is evenly spread across three generations- all with talent, experience of people three times their age- added together that’s 456 years of experience (and in an eerie coincidence that number is divisible by 3)

Three hulls: Like Cerberus, the three headed dog that guarded the gates of Hades, the F-27 trimaran will be jutting it’s three noses forward

Three objectives: Accomplish the race, Return home to fame if not fortune,  Raise funds and awareness to preserve the Great Bear Rainforest.

Welcome to the R2AK Team Blackfish, may the legacy of your race be more like that of the wise men than the stooges
