TOTEM guru, Chris Museler, showing some team stoke (His TOTEM Jacket) before departing on an epic voyage, New York-Barcelona IMOCA Ocean Masters race, as a stow-away journalist.
Bill Luder’s TOTEM narrowly escapes the snowy silence of the Maine woods to fill a mantle with 11 awards within three years. How she pulled in an evergreen sailor, a knowing writer, and a hand of wind warriors can only be understood by the silent breeze she lifts for.
TOTEM heads back to Maine this year to race again in the waters that she sipped 5 years ago on tired planks and random parts.
Great place and people. Amazing racing, best the fleet has ever seen.
