Shearwater (120)

Name Origin: As you know, a shearwater is a pelagic bird that spends most of its life as a nomad traveling the seas. We feel that character reflects well, our spirit.
Crew Adventures: Shearwater took across the Atlantic eastbound in 2012, across the Gulf of Mexico in 2013, and to Hawaii in 2014.
Racing History: This will be our first Swiftsure and a rare fully crewed event for Shearwater. We've raced Shearwater to Hawaii in the Pacific Cup 2014 double-handed and we've had a lot of fun racing Southern Straits, Patos Island, and Race to the Straits all double-handed in the last few years.
