Racing on the Valkyrie J120

Went out to race sailboats on Lake Michigan Wednesday night, no luck though, the wind was dead.  They called the race and all the boats, probably 150 of them out there, all motored back to the harbor.  We hung out and drank beers at the dock then headed home, last race of the summer!  To entertain ourselves we hoisted Eddie Kearns up the mast – he was going to jump from the spreaders, probably 25 feet up, into the lake but wussed out.  Here’s a short video of him and the other raceboats, with no wind…
