The Annapolis based Ippon Racing program is proud to sail in the 2019 CRAB Regatta in memory Mark Evans.
Mark was a life long sailor who I raced with for years on his J22. Mark suffered a stroke in 2017 which left him partially paralized and put an end to his j22 racing career. Mark still had one good arm though and I was able to convince him to helm my racer-cruiser in the 2017 CRAB regatta, we took first place in our class. Mark succumbed to his health issues and passed away in November of 2018. It was an honor to have him on board as a guest skipper, he rose above his handicaps, embodied true corinthian spirit, and was always a gentleman on and off the water.
