If you’re a parent, a grandparent, or a junior sailor, the Secor Volvo Fishers Island Sound Race has got to make you smile.  100 kids from all over the Northeast, racing their 420s on oddball point-to-point courses and having the time of their lives.  Past winner of the event Peter Cronin (with crew Zach Champney) is leading after 3 legs, and he’s also going for the On-Board Reporter award (more on that later) with some excellent storytelling in this short clip of the pre-race buildup.

Thanks to the Mudratz and friends, this race has a bigger digital footprint than most adult regattas, which might just be one of the reasons it’s been so successful.  Here are some features to pay attention to:
-Kids all sleeping in the school gym
-Live streaming each leg of the race on their Facebook page at 0900 ET today.
-Over 50 teams registered from 15 yacht clubs, including around 30% all-female teams.
-On board photographer on the water posting images to Facebook and Instagram
-Look for #FISVolvo
-Daily press releases
-OBR video competition with some great prizes.  Stay tuned for the good stuff after 7/21.
Huge thanks to media pro and Starboat sailor Laura Beigel for helping the kids tell the story.
