Every once in a while, you nail it. And, if you’re lucky, your dad catches it on video.
Jesse Andrews, the junior sailing director at Kaneohe Yacht Club and assistant sailing coach at University of Hawaii, managed to catch one such moment. Jesse was filming from the pin end of the starting line for the 2019 El Toro Junior North Americans when he caught his son Makani port-tacking the fleet at the start.
Nice move. Check out the video below.
While the El Toro was conceived on the shores of Richmond, the 11,000 boats built eventually spread far and wide. Kaneohe Yacht Club maintains an active fleet in Hawaii, and continues to be the breeding ground for hotshots like Makani Andrews.
