Coir Jaot #1842

 
 

Skipper/Crew:

Skipper – Tim Lynch  Crew – TBD (2-yr old Dylana won't make this trip)

San Juan History

Wes Vaughn is to blame.  He convinced Tim to purchase his San Juan in 2002 as a step up from dinghies.  Interestingly,  1842 came with Wes' hand-me-down sails.  That's one way to keep the new comers from beating you!

National Results:

This will be his first National Event.

Often Heard Aboard:

Where's Yellowjacket?

Cocktail of choice:

Guiness - extra cold

Other Notes:

First started sailing with Dad in 1972 off the Florida Panhandle.  Got first sailboat (AMF Wildflower) in trade for a used mountain bike (1996).  Built a plywood racing dinghy in winter of 1999-2000 and followed Wes Vaughn around the NW.  The 12' YELLOW dinghy looked like Yellowjacket's pesky kid brother.  Especially since Wes tows with a Dodge RAM Bighorn and Tim towed with a Ford Escort! Currently Commodore of the Lewis-Clark Sailing Association.
Coir Jaot translates from Gaelic to "Favorable Wind"
