ILDR Update

The Ida Lewis Distance Race skippers meeting is tonight at 6 so we won't know the course until then. They have the Yellow Brick tracker website up and the double handed division is schedule to start around 12:30 tomorrow. Ryan Wilson has graciously agreed to serve as co-skipper for this race.

We've done a lot of fully crewed racing together, including at least one Halifax and a Bermuda race on Nirvana, a beautiful maxi that was based out of Marblehead.

Sadly, her owner, Charlie Kiefer, passed away in December of 2013.
