2002 Admiralty Race
During the solstice week each year the Juneau Yacht Club holds the Around Admiralty - Spirit of Adventure Race.  This 200 mile race starts and finishes in Juneau and usually goes north around Admiralty Island, south down Chatham Straight, stops at Baranof Warm Springs, then continues around the south end of Admiralty Island and back to Juneau via Stephens Passage.  The 2002 race was run in a cruising format with nightly stops to allow short-handed crews time to rest an recuperate.  (See the Admiralty Race map page for more information.) Despite forecasts of light to nonexistent winds the racers started out with two days of 20+ knots and big seas.  over the following days the winds diminished, until on the final leg everyone motored home. Legacy with her long waterline and narrow beam romped along nicely in the strong winds and moved well in the light stuff finishing first every day, and winning every leg except one on corrected time.  Our win was largely due to having the expert assistance of Jon and Linda Kumin as crew.
