    This is our 3rd year in the Challenge. We won our first year--and it has been downhill since then. We generally do a rotating crew of folks around the office. Most of our crew are new to racing. Watching them panic at close crossings is always a highlight. The skipper, Chip Terry, grew up sailing on the coast of Maine and sailed at Tufts and Oxford Universities. He lives in Winchester with two kids. Chip is also chairman of the Board for Courageous. If you have any questions about how Courageous serves over 1,000 Boston kids every summer and how events like the Challenge are integral to running a successful program please ask. We are always looking for individuals and corporations to join in supporting the program.
     
    Skipper: Chip Terry
    Crew: Bryan Baecker, Malcolm Faulds, and various others
