Olympian Helena Scutt's Moth World Championships experience

Olympian Helena Scutt's Moth World Championships experience
29-year-old Helena Scutt is a force to be reckoned with, on and off the water ..

Product Review: The Sømand Farallon Sailing Jacket for Women

BY: ZEKE QUEZADA

American Sailing Association Somand Review
This jacket was tested while sailing in Santa Monica Bay on days with varying conditions from a cool overcast day of 52 degrees to a sunny but cooler afternoon at 64 degrees. My wife also used the Sømand Farallon Sailing Jacket for a spring skiing trip on Mammoth Mountain, on a rainy hike around a few lakes in Minnesota, and for an outdoor dinner in between sessions in some very cold ice rinks.
