This weekend, Magic Marine’s catamaran teams took a huge pile of Opti kids out for an experience they won’t soon forget on Holland’s Lake Brassem. With over 370 Optis entered, there was no shortage of crew for the Extreme 40, and I was joined by Carolyn Brouwer, Darren Bundock, and my new F-18 crew Cas Van Oort. We had a full range of conditions for the kids over two days, this pic is from the first day, as Sunday, with a double-reefed main, we were too busy dodging optimists to take any shots. The kids did a stellar job – helming and doing all the maneuvers. We’ll be out of jobs soon if they keep sailing like this. There’s a gallery of all the kiddies right here.
