Joining the Band

Bill Goggins from Harken has gotten cat scratch fever. Apparently, there is no cure….

What a WONDERFUL experience it was to get A Catting for my first time.  Ben and Nan Hall were the most gracious hosts and event organizers, and I learned so much from Lars and all of the great people in the class.  It was my first event, so I really just wanted to stay upright, be conservative, take transoms and keep the boat upright while I learn the footwork.  I did all of that and had a blast getting around the course.  These boats are something special – so balanced and fast.  I had my own adventures (like most newcomers have) but nothing would kill my buzz after that weekend.  Wes Wilcox from Harken (ex R&D head at Trek Bikes now helping us in product development at Harken) just bought one of Ben Hall’s used A Cats, so we’re going to do a LOT of training on Pewaukee Lake in the afternoons this summer to figure these bad boys out.  We’re stoked. -Bill.
