The Bermuda Race crew of Richard O’Leary, Carina Becker, Hector
McKemey, Madelyn Ploch, Collin Alexander, Brooks Daley and Will McKeige was coached by the elder Becker and Alexander, as well as by pro sailor
Guillermo Altadill, who came aboard, pro bono, to assist with coaching,
tactics and navigation.
“Guillermo pushed the kids a little harder than they had been before, but with a smile,” says Becker. “They really took to his guidance, and throughout the race, we were all on the same page because of Guillermo’s strategies.”
