BRINGING THE FAMILY TOGETHER
Chris Andert shares his experience sailing with his family in the MC Class. "My two daughters Anna and Maija really caught the racing bug in 2019. Both Liz and I love being on the water and around sailing, and its just as much fun for us to see them fall in love with the sport too. Its so much fun to have them crew for me. But as I see them continue to come up the curve in their own sailing skill, I know it wont be long until someday Im crewing for them I cant wait for that to happen!"
