Warrior Sailing Program

The Chicago-Mac race was another great challenge for the 9 warriors racing onboard the warrior 53. So proud of our teamwork and dedication to sailing the boat consistently and safely. We (Ben and all warrior coaches) are so proud of our team.

For those of you following along on the tracker, you saw us crushing it and looking at a podium finish in section 2 of the race. With 7 miles to the finish a huge thunderstorm to the south west consumed all of our wind and left us completely still and sailing upwind. While this was happening, the storms energy gave wind to all of our competitors sailing behind us. We watched in agony as our podium finish slipped away over 7 miles.

That is sailing, and it doesn’t take away from our amazing race.

We were first to finish across the line in our tough section of boats. And our corrected time left us 6th out of 15 boats in our section. Great effort.

Looking forward to port Huron to Mac race next weekend.

Warrior53 is working our way up Lake Michigan. Very proud of the teamwork and position we have put ourselves in so far in the race to mackinac.

One thing you don’t have to teach warriors is persistence. We will fight to the end and keep working to accomplish this goal!
