Two and a half years ago, just before I moved back to my native Finland, I asked, and was granted, a day trip on AlyKat out of Newport. They day was picture perfect, saw a fleet of classic 12s in a race, and I got try my balance for the first time on a SUP board. But, most important, I got to repair the glaring omission of not having sailed off the New England coast in the 27 years I lived there! Kia and her captain were wonderful hosts. Magic Day!
