Spider a Beiley B-25 Sailboat out of GYC

My brother, Darren trailered his B-25 down from Genesee Yacht Club to participate in the Oak Orchard Yacht Club Invitational Regatta. I spliced together some video of him and crew during the race.

Information about the designer of the B-25:

LEIF BEILEY started sailing and surfing while in high school in southern California. As a teenager he built surfboards in his garage and sailed multihulls. After college he worked in the aerospace industry as an engineer. In 1988 Beiley founded Bboats, Inc. to build and market a production version of the B-25. This boat not only won many Grand Prix regattas, but was the first trailerable boat to be competitive in virtually all venues, winning such diverse events as the Colorado ILYA PHRF championship, Key West Race Week (twice), Trimble North Race Week and the Santa Barbara--King Harbor Race. While designing and building racing yachts occupied much of his time and energy, he continued to race.
