Rappahannock River Yacht Club

Commodore Terry & Mrs. Nancy Greene will entertain us with tales of their ocean racing days. Wine, beer and light hors d'oeuvres to follow. Terry will talk about long-distance ocean racing i.e. races over distances greater than a thousand nautical miles. These races are different, in ways other than length, from races around the buoys or races of a few hundred miles. Terry will tell about what he has learned from a Norwegian explorer on how to keep things running smoothly and about a helicopter rescue, and he will include photos and stories from two of the long races.  Nancy will talk about provisioning for a long race.
