Ken’s year of doublehanded sailing kicked-off in February, a few weeks before we knew close-to-home, short-handed sailing would be so popular this summer. Luckily for Ken, talented crew and world-class competition are never hard to find in Newport, Rhode Island.
Inspired by the growing doublehanded trend, Ken has been alternating races with his brother Brad and Suzy Leech. They’ve been getting to know their boat Alchemist, a Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300, and bonding as teammates. Putting in their miles on the Sun Fast has brought them several successes. Alchemist has won on handicap in all three races entered and took line honors in the New England Twin/Solo.
