Surviving Cancer to Sail Again
As I began to feel better after my surgery I was searching for a way to say thank you to my doctor David Samadi. I had already promised to take him sailing, and came up with the idea of a setting a sponsor spinnaker when he came out. Working with Whitney Gladstone at North Graphics and with the Dr.’s web designer, we came up with a bold design and Whitney made it happen. Luckily we had a fast David Hirsch designed all white 1.5A ready to go, and the IRC Nationals were the perfect conditions for this asym most of the time.
We also decided to rename High Noon with the Robotic Oncology graphics, again produced by North Graphics. And the new 3Di sails including square top main and new Light and Medium genoas proved incredibly fast, making a noticeable improvement in the boat’s speed. We were able to win every race except one in Class. In race five, after being over the starting line early, we returned to re-start and were already in first again by the first windward mark. Chris Williams design, and the 3Di process are a winning combination! Thank you to everyone at North Sails who have helped me through a difficult winter, and made such great graphics and fast sails!
