Our very own Alegria is off on her way to Maui in the 50th year of the VIC MAUI race. Owner Eberhard Heinzemann and Navigator Tom Wahl are both Cooper instructors who sailed the race in 2014. The rest of the crew comes from our community here at Cooper and a collection of first time participants.
After a tricky start in light winds, she's fighting her way back up in the fleet. Early reports are a couple crew members suffering with some sea sickness... but we're hoping their bodies adjust quickly to life offshore.
Cooper Boating has helped prepare people for offshore experiences for the last 33 years. We also help people learn to cope with the bucket issue the crew has been dealing with so far!
