Three truths and a lie (in case your aren’t familiar with this game, three of the four things below are true):
- Has sailed everything from dinghies to coastal cruisers and race boats.
- Is one of the few sailors known to have transited a lake on an unmodified picnic table.
- Racing experience includes a college full of dinghy sailing, Swiftsures, Whidbey Island Race Weeks, Round Whidbey, Race to the Straits, and around the cans closer to home.
- As part of a strategy to cover the R2AK brand space occupied by “Team Crunch and Munch” (recently withdrawn), Team Fiddle Faddle is a sponsored campaign by the same named carmel-covered popcorn.
Fun fact: This is the second Santana 20 to be in the R2AK. Last year Team Kelp rang the bell in Ketchikan after 17 days, 22 hours, 37 minutes.
