Finding Success in a New Discipline
 
Diving headfirst into a new style of sailing has made for an exciting and competitive summer for North Sails President Ken Read. Join Ken live with special guests Suzy Leech and Brad Read as they debrief their summer of doublehanded sailing.
MONDAY, AUGUST 24TH
3:00 PM EDT / 8:00 PM BST

 
Ken’s year of doublehanded sailing kicked-off in February, a few weeks before we knew close-to-home, short-handed sailing would be so popular this summer. Luckily for Ken, talented crew and world-class competition are never hard to find in Newport, Rhode Island. Inspired by the growing doublehanded trend, Ken has been alternating races with his brother Brad and Suzy Leech. They’ve been getting to know their boat Alchemist, a Sunfast 3300, and bonding as teammates. Putting in their miles on the Sunfast has brought them several successes. Alchemist has won on handicap in all three races entered and took line honors in the New England Twin/Solo and was named the overall winner of the Ida Lewis Distance Race.
