Outremer Cup – Day 1

The annual Outremer owners regatta began today in La Grande Motte France, with a friendly prologue event where all the boats went out together for a social sail. We all took along passengers that mostly consisted of people that work at Outremer and their families. We owe these folks a lot for all the care and skill they put into building our boats, and it was a pleasure to be able to go sailing with them!

The weather was beautiful, sunny and warm with about 10 knots of wind. Here are a few photos…
