On July 6th, Fred and I will be at the start of the Pacific Cup ocean race on Thirsty, our 30′ footer sailing boats between San Francisco and Hawaii. We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed sailing together in 2012, but before that we had done it with a full crew on NAOS2 during the Transpacific ocean race in 2011.

In 2012, one of our magic 2011 crew members, our chef, our best sailing buddy GILLES was supposed to be waiting for our arrival in Hawaii with Mai-Tais : he never made it because he was already suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease

So we decided to return this year with a new boat and race for the cause to raise funds to support ALS research for GILLES, in memory of all the good times we have had together.
