BREAKING! Thames YC Members take ‘Onboard Reporter’ Honors

Readers and Club Members may remember this great video from Samson and Colin back at the end of August during the Secor Volvo Race. They won awards for their racing that day, and now we know they won awards for their video!

The Secor Volvo Fishers Island Sound Race ‘Onboard Reporter’ Award is presented to the junior crew that best tells the story of their race day experience. Dorfman and Madaus’ teamwork, camaraderie and plain love for sailing are evident in their winning video, which includes some great footage shot from the trapeze. As the event’s top Onboard Reporters, Dorfman and Madaus won a WASPcam™ 9905 WiFi camera.

According to Madaus, sailing is a big part of the lives of all the team racers at TYC, “because the amount to teamwork and confidence we need in each other has allowed for us all to grow and mature together.” It shows. This year’s race was wild, with 25+ knot winds with towed boats bumping and surfing in 5-foot seas. The exhilarating sailing was captured with a very well produced video.

Congrats to Samson Dorfman and Colin Madaus! Read full coverage in Windcheck Magazine!
