BIO: In a lot of ways culture along the R2AK race route has changed since the 1880’s Gold Rush made it famous in eurocentric circles. You can stop mid-race and get legally gay weed married regardless of what state or province you happen to be in, but Google the term “father-daughter”and unless you’re a creep, what your search engine gives you is a boatload of sites dedicated to the old-timey assumption that the primary function of a father to his daughter is talking about or symbolically giving away her reproductive functions: wedding dances, cotillion success strategies, “the talk.”

Team Lost Boys‘ father/daughter/player-to-be-named-later entry into the R2AK stands tall as an example that in the today part of history there are some pretty hoo-ra ways to pass on family legacy through the ladies. With a lineage that reaches back 4 generations to take pride in their great-great-greats who were sea captains, then plunges their next human iteration into 750 miles of cold water adventure, the family at the core of Team Lost Boys has been at sea professionally for a few generations now and continues to seek greenwater baptisms to make sure their pups earn their salt.  The two-generation snapshot of the family onboard Team Lost Boys can claim lives less ordinary – spent on and around the water from the Gulf of Mexico to the Bering Sea, growing up in Dutch Harbor, whitewater rafting, diving, kayaking, collegiate sailing, professional mariner-ing, and now the R2AK.

Rather than saving up for a dowry, this family squandered it on an F-24 trimaran and raised up a daughter who seeks adventure and knows how to dress a wound, launch the liferaft, or just keep sailing like hell. At the age of 19 she’s the youngest we’ve been impressed with enough to let in the race. That’s pretty cool.
Welcome aboard Team Lost Boys, do your lineage proud.
