New Addition to Offshore Fleet

There has been alot of speculation and debate about this one, but Kings Point will soon take over the 90' canting keel speedster Genuine Risk. Kings Point sailors will sail with donor Mr. Randall Pittman in the Chicago to Mackinac race, and many alumni and a few current team members have been in Sarnia, Ontario getting the boat ready for the race. Ralf Steitz and I will be joining the boat today for the 450 mile transit from Sarnia to Holland, MI in preperation for the race. The boats 16.5 ft draft will keep it away from KP most of the time, but it will allow our sailors to compete is some world class events in the years to come. Thanks to j/80 Jibberish for the pic.
