First Mac Race as Skipper!

The 2008 Mac race was a special Mac race as it was my first race as skipper!

I presented my experience as a rookie Mac skipper to the Chicago Yacht Club's Cruising Sail Fleet at their annual "Meet the Fleet" dinner in April, 2009.  My intent was to share with fellow cruiser what the race is like, from race prep to competing in the race and the cruise back.

Most pictures are from Danny Pinnell, except where noted on the slides.
