When I was a kid, my dad used to always tell me that the boat that makes the least mistakes will win the race. In the last 30 years I have participated in or witnessed nearly every mistake known to sailors and I will share with you how to avoid as many as possible.
About Andy Camarda
Andy first set sail before he could walk, sailing on his father’s Tartan 10 out of Montrose Harbor. He’s been addicted ever since. Andy grew up racing a mixture of keelboats and one design dinghies throughout Chicago and the Midwest, twice winning the Midwest Junior Sailor of the Year award. He continued sailing in college with the University of Rhode Island sailing team. After returning to Chicago, Andy spent a few years working a traditional office job and sailing on the weekends.
