Ezra and Tracy Nan Smith took their holiday break late this year with their little daughter to sail in the I/14 Worlds in Sydney. Sailing their Beiker 5 14 (he was a BMW Oracle lead engineer) named “Standing on the verge of getting ot on,” they just qualified for the Gold Fleet. http://www.nsw.yachting.org.au/site/yachting/nsw/downloads/Yachting%20NSW/Finals%20Fleet.pdf

I wrote a cover story for the May 2009 issue of Sailing World Magazine on the class and Onne van der Wal’s image of them was the cover shot.
