the moose & hutch show
Whaddya get when you put the youngest-ever winning skipper of the Volvo Ocean Race together with one of America’s best skippers on a J/V 72 with enough time on the water now for the kinks to be worked out? At the moment, Terry Hutchinson and Moose Sanderson have helped Hap Fauth’s Bella Mente to a current 1st overall, 1st in class, and less than a mile behind the all-conquering Rambler 90 in one of the world’s most enjoyable races. Track them here, and there’s just a few hours left for one lucky guesser to win a bottle of Oracle Team USA alum and Antigua native Shannon Falcone’s home-brewed rum; we’re not sure it’s legal, but Shannon vowed on his Facebook page to send a bottle to whoever can get closest to the correct line honors boat and closest finish time, but you have to get it in before noon PST today (that’s in a few hours). Check it out here and thanks to forss for the heads up in the thread. Tim Wright photo.
