You will also have crew on some of the qualifying races: Swiftsure, Southern Straits, Oregon Offshore
, etc.. Too late for the Van Isle 360.
It is a downwind race. Experience as a spinnaker
and mainsheet trimmer, and helmsman (especially at night) is highly recommended.
Experience is more important than qualifications.
