Westerdam crew members experienced the thrill of racing multi-million dollar America’s Cup race boats in the warm, blue waters and trade winds of St. Maarten.
They became a different kind of crew, as they were assigned jobs as grinders, trimmers, look-outs and time-keepers. The two boats were neck and neck throughout the entire race and no one knew if Stars and Stripes or True North would emerge victorious. In the end, Stars and Stripes crossed the finish line first and took home the win!
