He served as the Race Chairman of the Annapolis to Newport Race in 2017 and 2019 and will serve as Chair again for the 2021 event. Jim has the distinction of having been the skipper of Making Waves, a Beneteau 40.7 which sank 30 miles south of Long Island after a catastrophic rudder failure during a 2008 delivery from Annapolis to Newport. His current boat is named Shinnecock in honor of the Coast Guardsmen from USCG Station Shinnecock who rescued him and his crew.
