JADE is raced successfully doublehanded and fully crewed.  In the last 3 years, Jade has won 0r placed in the top 3 finishers of the GPYC Bluenose Regatta, Windsor YC Overnighter, DBC Regatta, DYC Sweepstakes, GPYC Regatta, CSYC Doublehanded Series, and others.  On the doublehanded circuit, 2006 was capped off with a victory at the DoubleHanded Association's (DHA) Season Championship hosted by North Star Sail Club, which was a 3 race series including a night race, a windward leeward, and an olympic traingle.  In 2008 Jade was victorious in the "Hind Hornett" which is the DHA Season opener in May, and went on to do very well in the competitive CSYC Doublehanded Spring and Summer series.  Although all seasons have provided many memories, and fun times with family/friends, 2008 was particularly memorable.  With consistent crew, a new tuff luff, a new #1, and an improved bottom/keel we had our best year ever, 9 FLAGS.  Our crew has a memory of that season, an engraved JADE mug with our logo and "9FLAGS" on the back!!

LETS MAKE 2009 even BETTER.  2009 theme should be "BLUE NOT YELLOW," since 1st place flags are blue, and 3rd's are yellow. 


2008 DRYA Awards Banquet:  We attended with Cody, Erik, Nick and Jason.  It was nice to collect our two flags, spring DRYA 2nd in PHRF 2, and 3rd for the season overall in PHRF 2.  A nice cap to our best year, and great crew work.  There were rumors that the crew tried to pay for drinks at the bar with the meal tickets, and it was working to someone blew our cover.  The night cap occurred at Toms Oyster Bar, with a crazy woman sitting with Erik, Cody and Jason discussing some interesting topics, and trying to get free drinks.  In typical chivalrous fashion, she got sent her bill as she tried to leave, much to her surprise the championship bocce ball team (as we claimed we just finished hanging the banner at Ford Field) decided we did not feel as though we should subsidize her antics.  Thanks to all the crew that made 2008 memorable and successful.
