Admiralty Island Rally 2020 – June 20-June 28
This year’s AIR was a spectacular Southeast Alaska cruise, comprised of 7 legs of sailing and a two- day layover at Baranof Warm Springs. Weather was typical – overcast with a few days of sun, and a few days of persistent rain! Official participants include S/V Surprise – Anthony and Lori and Crupi with their two teens Eli and Serena (she had her 13th birthday in Baranof!), S/V Lyric skippered by Wade Rogers , with crew member Kacie Timothy, and S/V A Little Romance Skippered by Steve Parker, with Crew Hal Geiger. Support participants included S/V Morning Star skipped by Rick Edwards with his son Kieran as crew, and M/V Juniebell with Sean Boily and Sarah Lewis, their son Axel, and ever vigilant sea-dog Chili.
The course and play by play:
Leg 1, 6/20 - Marmion Island to Point Astley:
Race start off Marmion Island at 10 am was bumped up to Pt. Arden and 11am due to lack of wind.
Recently, four of our seasoned Spirit of Admiralty Skippers, were interviewed by Alec Wilkinson from the podcast, Sailing Uncovered, a great podcast based in the UK. You should definitely check it out.
In the meantime, you can listen to the podcast about the Spirit as told by Anthony Crupi, Brian Lieb, Sean Boily, and Dave D'Amore, right here:
Starting at 10:00 a.m. between the Committee boat and the Marmion Island Day Mark ( an imaginary line bearing 060 magnetic to, and within ½ mile of the mark), the boats will sail ONE of these courses:
A. North into Taku Inlet, crossing an imaginary line bearing 60 magnetic to, and within ½ mile of Jaw Point, returning and crossing an imaginary line bearing 060 magnetic to, and within ½ mile of the Marmion Island Day mark.
