Welcome to the 2018 Ms. Race
We are pleased to host the 14th annual AHYC Ms. Race
Charity Regatta on our beautiful Sandy Hook Bay and we
extend a warm welcome to all who have come together to
support our special event.
The Ms. Race brings together female sailors of all ages
who share a love of sailing and a respect for the sea. Our
theme this year is Winds of Change and the committee made a
few changes to this year’s event including a new race format to
attract more racers.
The regatta has provided a platform where women and
girls new to sailing can enjoy the experience in a supportive
environment. We are very proud that a few of these young
sailors have chosen to go to college to further their maritime
education and are striving to succeed in that industry. We wish
to thank the captains and crews, our families and friends and
the generous sponsors, donors, and supporters who have
contributed to the success of our regatta and have helped us
raise funds for 180 Turning Lives Around.

“Women Racing for Women”
Winds of Change
Adapted from Ms. Race article by Alyssa Pepsny
Summer sun, a warm August breeze blowing across the Sandy Hook Bay and
nine racing sailboats with all female captain and crew ready to challenge each
other to sail their fastest and best. This year’s theme is Winds of Change.
Women sailors share their love of racing sailboats, breeze, and teamwork.
Women sailing for Winds of Change are racing to bring awareness and gain
support for 180 Turning Lives Around, a private, non-proﬁt organization that is
dedicated to putting an end to domestic and sexual violence in our communities.
180 provides a myriad of services to individuals and families. For the past
fourteen years, the Ms. Race has been held to show support and gain
awareness for those who are affected by domestic and sexual violence.
The Ms. Race helps to build conﬁdence in women sailors. Each year women are
encouraged to participate in the race and step outside or expand their comfort
zone. Some women have been hesitant to take the helm of their own boat, or
trim a sail or call tactics. With gentle persuasion and an awesome camaraderie of
friends, these women have entered the race and proven to themselves that they
can do it.
My family and friends have been racing together in the Ms. Race for many years
on Overlap a Beneteau 1st 40.7. During our ﬁrst race over eight years ago, we
were moveable ballast, running from side to side of the boat. We were all so
young and light; individually our weight was insigniﬁcant to the 40’ boat but as a
team we were able to heal the boat over for more speed and point. We learned
the importance of teamwork at a very young age. My sister Lauren drove the 40’
racing sailboat in 2015, earning a second place!
Each year we learn a different life lesson from “anything is possible” to “sailing is
both skill and luck” to “many hands make the job easier”. My sister Brianna says
it best for an important life lesson. “Before you go racing off at a million miles an
hour make sure you know where you are going.” In 2016, our team on Overlap
sailed the very fast 40’ race boat faster and better than we have ever sailed her
before as a team. Unfortunately, our team read the wrong course, and went
speeding off in the wrong direction off course. It is an important life lesson I don’t
think any of us will forget. We didn’t make that mistake again last year and once
again earned a respectable second place.
The women racers have a lot of support from other club members, husbands,
signiﬁcant others and family. The supporters help set up the race and run the
committee boat and offer a pre-race safety seminar over breakfast. During the
race, photos have been taken by plane, drone and from other sailboats. The race
through pictures is well documented! It is a very special day, ﬁrst or last, for
Winds of Change!
