There is a FIRST Time for Everything...
Amidst the hot weather of July, we spent a recent night with New Owners Jason and Les Veatch talking sailing with WGN-TV's Marcus Leshock. Jason has been a crew member aboard a First 36.7 -Karma for the past four seasons. It has been a pleasure seeing him develop as a sailor and taking on new positions on the boat.
This past off season he decided to launch head on into boat ownership and buy his own boat which he has christened 'Veni Vidi Veatchy' a play on the famous declaration by Julius Ceasar in the war at Pontus in ~47B.C and his last name. He has also taken on the nautical life in full force by joining the Chicago Yacht Club as an Associate member. It represents a new phase of Jason's life as he becomes a boat owner at the age of 25 and teaches the sport to his father Les. We are sure there will be many quality memories aboard their new Beneteau and are glad to be a part of it.
Jason will be doing his first Race to Mackinac in two weeks so you can be sure he will have many stories to tell when he gets back.
This past Tuesday, he officially christened his boat compliments of Veuve Clicquot Champagne- Presenting sponsors of the 102nd Chicaco Yacht Club Race to Mackinac at the docks of Chicago Yacht Club.
Congratulations Jason and Les- Fair winds from your friends at Karma Yacht Sales.
