Prepping the F4 for an offshore blast
Our F4 program partners Shannon Falcone and Tommy Loughborough first raced from New York City to Bermuda with America’s Cup Team Oracle skipper Jimmy Spithill. As they went along, the weather system completely changed and as a result the team ended up in severely bad weather. Once arrived in Bermuda everyone took some rest, part of the crew went home and snowboarding superstar Travis Rice flew in to join the team for another epic offshore adventure.
The NYC to Bermuda session was a mere 660 miles. The next trip would be a 1000+ miles, destination Antigua. No race, just sailing fast and having fun. Mission succeeded. Footage will follow in due course, however we could not resist sharing Travis Rices Facebook picture just prior to departure. This is what you need for offshore blasts – and it can all find an organized place in the F4.
