Breaking Records

Come along with Hoofer Sailing for the ride aboard a 60 ft. racing machine with the Thunderstruck’s record-shattering 2020 Hook Race. Sailing Program Manager David Elsmo will go through the process of owner Rick Hennig’s decision to purchase and refit a retired race boat through to shattering a 33-year-old course record on the team’s first sail. Join us as we walk through some video taken during the race, our decision-making processes as well as the weather that helped pushed the 18-person crew across the finish line in record time.
