Bodacious Dream Photos

On this page are selected photos of Bodacious Dream beginning with the most recent and extending all the way back to her build and launch in New Zealand in late 2011.

The top part of the page has  photos from the recent Atlantic Cup Race which (with Dave and Matt, co-skippering) Bodacious Dream won.

The lower part of the page has photos from 2012 leading up to Dave’s solo crossing of the Atlantic from Portugal in December 2012 and into January 2013.

The¬†Atlantic Cup¬†is a dedicated Class 40 grand prix sailing race. The FIRST of two double-handed legs of the 2013 race left Charleston, SC May 11th to NYC. The SECOND leg left NYC for Newport, RI on May 18th. In Newport, skippers ran five races in the THIRD inshore leg with a maximum crew of six. Below are selected photos arranged chronologically¬†from all three legs … ending with the awards ceremony where Bodacious Dream was declared the overall winner.¬†Many thanks to the¬†Atlantic Cup¬†and to¬†11th Hour Racing¬†for a great race! Additional thanks to photographer¬†Billy Black¬†for many great shots, and to all the Bodacious Dreamers who sailed, helped and supported us along the way!
