Free Bowl of Soup (519)

Name Origin: Based on a line from the movie Caddyshack by Judge Smails, "Oh, this is the worst looking hat I ever saw! You buy a hat like this, I'll bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh? Oh, it looks good on you, though" (eye roll). Named decided by the team at a New Year's Eve party the night before picking up the first Soup, a J24, from San Francisco. Moved up to a J/105 in 2011.
Crew Adventures: Free Bowl of Soup is a 3-member partnership between Matt Davis, Eric Hopper, and Doug Schenk, rounded out with the long-time team of Scott Davey, Keith Sheets, Eric Albertson, and Eric Hopper's son Sam. Highlight has been a Pacific Cup in 2014.
Racing History: This will be Free Bowl of Soup's 7th Swiftsure, each time arriving via the Oregon Offshore. "Always a Challenge" is the right term for Swiftsure as it keeps us coming back. Exciting to have a J/105 class this year, and last.
