OUT – Real Thing

FULL RACE – Port Townsend to Ketchikan

Team Name: Real Thing

Team Captain: Todd Bryan

Total crew: 3

Vessel: L-7 (the trimaran, not the 90’s band)

Team Real Thing hails from the Bay area but their adventuring resume is a far ranging and includes multiple marathons, long distance hiking and cycling, kayaking Europe, building and rebuilding boats, an Ironman or two, and they claim to never being run over by a a freighter on their many trips to and from California’s Channel Islands- not even once. They are also the only team we know of with an Eagle Scout onboard- that’s right, a fricking Eagle Scout. A lot of the teams have experience, but as far as we know Team Real Thing might be the only one who is also Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.(Plus it looks like their boat is pretty fast.)
