Sagamore Ridealong in Chicago

We jump on board with Laura and Tone Martin in their new-to-them 65-foot ride for this summer's Chicago YC Race to Mackinac.

Chicago’s Laura and Tone Martin have a lot of Mackinac races between them and for this summer’s edition they’re together onboard their new-to-them Farr-designed STP65, Sagamore. Aiming for line honors and a section win, the Martins assembled a crew of friends and longtime mates and immediately set out to learn the boat’s systems and build playbook for getting right sails flying at the right time. Two days of distance racing at the Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series in Chicago was a start and Sailing World‘s Dave Reed joined them for a day to capture the experience. Come onboard to see how the Sagamore team gets this boat around the track in its second race.
