We bought a new boat with our friends Don Maxwell and Dan Gabriel. We are the proud owners of J/70 hull #14 Surprise (formerly NoPro). The J/70 is a small (22 foot) racing sailboat, which Don, Dan & Matt intend to race locally and nationally. Our sail number is USA 14.
We bought the boat 1/8/16 and Matt got to sail it in a regatta right away with its former owner, Mark Foster, and our friends Chuck Nevel and Laura Sigmond, event 2 in the Davis Island J/70 Winter Series (the boat was entered under Mark's name as NoPro). We did really well by my estimation, finishing 18th out of 48 boats and had 2 top-10 finishes.
