Team Velocity Sailing is a group of young, enthusiastic beach catamaran sailors with humble roots, but grandiose plans. Defying the skeptics from the start, its woefully inexperienced, underprepared founders Trey and Tad competed and finished their first Tybee 500 while still in college.
They say life is a learning experience, and Team Velocity has learned as it has grown. We’ve competed in national and international events, growing from a single boat held together by college student intuition – to a four boat “syndicate” whose members can proudly boast of their many accomplishments on the water. At its core, Team Velocity is a group of young individuals who thrive on spreading the excitement and thrill of multihull racing to as many people as possible.
We all remember the days of the Worrell 1000 – where teams lined up to take a crack at being the hardest, fastest bastards on two hulls. We remember when legends from the monohull world, from the America’s Cup world, from Europe, Australia, and New Zealand – would line up bow-to-bow against some of the best (and some of the worst) in North America to shove off through the breakers into the Atlantic every morning. We want to bring that back – we believe in this race and the life experiences that it gives everyone who participates in it.
The members of Team Velocity Sailing have put together an outsourced logistics program for the 2012 Tybee 500. Anyone who has tried to compete in a race like this knows that the preparations begin months in advance, and that getting to the beach is half the battle. Even outside of preparing boats, hardware, and sailors, the logistical planning that goes into this race is often the one hurdle that intimidates most people out of competing in this epic event.
If you are a cat sailor and you’re on the fence about competing, give TVS a shout about handling your logistics. We can arrange your hotels, reserve your ground crew, arrange meals, and handle race paperwork on your behalf.
So get in touch with us, and lets make it happen.
