Three members of the AYSF competed in the Swiftsure International Yacht race over Memorial weekend. The race consists of three courses of differing lengths. Josh Larsen skippered his Olson 30 named “Lunch Box” to a victory in his division, also placing 7th in the overall on the Cape Flattery course. Ian Andrewes raced on the Swan 45 “Freebyrd” in the 100-mile course as the trimmer and tactician. Evan Sjostedt ran the bow on “Wasabi”, a Kernan 44, placing 2nd in their division. They successfully performed a man overboard in 30 knots of wind at night while ripping downwind, getting the MOB back on board within 10 minutes.
