Youngster determined to sail the 12 Hour Challenge Solo

MAC 12 Hour 2018 News
We are currently in full swing with the MAC 12 Hour Challenge.  All eyes on Jared Tyler who is determined to race the MAC 12 Hour Challenge on his own, on a Laser. We only have a handful of people who have managed that & they were adults.  In my memory the following sailors have sailed the 12 Hour solo, Ryan Barnardo on a SonnetMichelle Allardice on a RS Tera (First Lady) & Hansie Vonschutz.  Jared would be the youngest.

I do recall Hansie still having bandages on the back of his legs two weeks later, Ouch!

Come on down & support Jared in this venture.
