Race to Alaska 2016 – Meet Team Sistership

Michelle Boroski – Captain, Johanna Gabbard, Janice Mason, Sherry Smith – Team Sistership is the first all female crew to join the R2AK family, and they are all over 50.  They studied last year’s race then acquired a F-27 trimaran.  Their collective resume has professional sailors, an Olympian rower, riggers & sailmakers, and while we’re at it throw in a few transits: Oceans, Great Lakes, and the Panama Canal to name a few.  Title 9 had a huge impact in shaping the lives of these women.  They are racing with the hope of inspiring other women.

    Great Video. Very inspiring women. I think it’s great they are out to inspire other women that Anything is possible. When I coached high school competitive rowing, I found the girls on the team to be the quickest learners and the best at technique – way more coachable and fast at learning.
