Ride the Wind (8188)

Name Origin: It originates from a Chinese saying - "Ride the wind, break the waves". It means something like "Go forward and prosper".
Crew Adventures: The crew is made up of sailors from Calgary belonging to two yacht clubs: Glenmore Sailing Club and Calgary Yacht Club. We have all sailed at various levels in many kinds of boats from dinghies to keelboats.

Mostly we just enjoy the competition and taking advantage of the opportunity to do some ocean sailing as a team.

Racing History: This is my third Swiftsure and the second for this crew. We raced this boat in last year's Swiftsure and placed 4th in our division. Hoping for a better result this year.
