Wet Wednesday Kicks Off

Welcome to Wet Wednesday, our weekly search for a video to break up the time most of us have to spend ashore. Something from the Northwest is vastly preferable, but we’ll kick it off with some top-flight pro dousings. The only rule is, something or someone has to get wet. The wetter the better. If you have a video from the Northwest, send the link to me and I’ll put it in the queue! Thanks.

What wetter way to kick it off than with the irrepressible Alex Thomson showing off Hugo Boss, and a recap of the second leg of the Volvo Round the World Race. If you have 7 minutes the Volvo video will catch you up to where they stand right now. “Our” Americans on Vestas 11th Hour Racing are doing great.



Please share this post with your friends! And for those of you headed out for the Winter Vashon Race on Saturday, Bruce Hedrick will be delivering a pre-race weather outlook and tactical plan. Watch for it Friday.
