Crew Change For Esprit Scout

Due to an injury sustained to Skipper Marc Dubos, Esprit Scout has been forced into making a crew change. Bow #81 will now be crewed by Atlantic Cup race veterans Liz Shaw O’Toole and Kyle Hubley. Liz raced the first leg of the 2016 Atlantic Cup alongside fellow Magenta Project member Libby Greenhalgh placing 3rd onboard #118 Oakcliff. Kyle raced the Atlantic Cup in 2014 onboard his Class40 Flatline. This last minute edition is an experienced team, but they have little time to get to know their new boat!

The Atlantic Cup would like to send a huge thank you to the Charleston Yacht Club for the wonderful southern hospitality they’re showing the staff and teams as we’re set up here this week!
