  • Not The Way To Start Your Weekend

    Sad news from last weekend's Round The County race.

    Terry Reid and crew were delivering their Hobie 33 to the Orcas Island Yacht Club for the start on Saturday when some
    unfortunate circumstances arose, and the boat did not survive, but fortunately the crew are a well and accounted for.

    "Hi RTC Sailors, This is Terry, the owner of Stretch, a Hobie 33'.

    I wanted to update everyone on our incident that very many of you have been inquiring about and sending your thoughts for our safety. Stretch and crew attempted our delivery to the San Juan Islands Friday afternoon. We later got into very strong winds and the boat had troubles. Eventually all five crew were safely rescued from Stretch by the amazing work of the USCG."

    "Stretch was found on Monday morning upon the rocks and is a total loss. Thanks for everyone's kind words and support."

    Best, Terry
