Another successful year for Spirit of Canada Ocean Challenges; a 3rd place finish in the VELUX 5 Oceans Single Handed Race around the world race and a successful solo transatlantic training passage with team member Patianne Verburgh at the helm returning Active House Spirit of Canada to Canadian waters. The remainder of the 2011 summer was spent conducting two quick training runs to Bermuda.
2012 is set to be another year of challenges as we set sail once again with the training runs to Bermuda and Horta aboard the Spirit of Canada. These sessions are aimed at keeping Derek and the team competitive while preparing for the next race around the world.
