Kerry TeedI have been sailing for 7 years now, mainly club racing with some coastal cruising holidays in the mix with my husband on our boat. I love the challenge of the continually variable conditions, trying to get the most from the boat by tweaking the trim, working the helm and reading the conditions to find the fastest course for the race. Every day presents me with new conditions so always a challenge and always something to learn.Team Captain
