Tonight marked practice #1 for the MudRatz After Dark program with star coaches 
@annnnieloooongo and Patt Murphy! 

With not much wind, it was mostly floating with lots of safety training. What could be better than a Friday night with you and 7 of your friends on a Melges 24?? 🌙

Thank you Niantic Bay Yacht Club (@nianticbaysailingacademy) for hosting the MudRatz again for an awesome fall season!

The Mudratz sailed their Farr 45 Spitfire across the the finish line in 3 days, 7 hours, and 22 minuets 54 seconds.  They were the first youth team to finish the 2022 Newport to Bermuda Race and in so set a new unofficial Stephens Brothers division youth record previously held by the Young Americans team in their epic 2016 run aboard High Noon in 3 days 16 hours, 27 minutes, 5 seconds.  Overall they unofficially stand at 26th out of 188 teams.
