Event Information


Come along for the ride aboard a 60ft racing machine with the Thunderstruck’s record shattering 2020 Hook Race. Sailing Program Manager David Elsmo will go through the process of owner Rick Hennig’s decision to purchase and refit a retired race boat through to shattering a 33 year old course record on the team’s first sail. Join us as we walk through some video taken during the race, our decision making processes as well as the weather that helped pushed the 18-person crew across the finish line in record time.
