Stars & Stripes: Mailsail Trimmer

Had the pleasure of being the Mainsail Trimmer on the Stars & Stripes 87 (US 55) for a race on Saturday. S&S 87 was the 12 Meter challenge boat sailed by Dennis Conner in his successful bid to reclaim the America’s Cup from the Royal Perth Yacht Club of Australia in 1987. No rope burns!
