Marion Lepert's (age 13) Gorge Blowout

Jul 22, 2009

The Gorge Blowout race is North American's windiest destination's signature event... and 13 year-old Marion Lepert, from the San Francisco Bay area made it look easy. She covered the distance from Stevenson, WA to Hood River, OR (advertised as 17-miles) in 1:37:05 claiming first overall for the women's fleet.

Marion's gear of choice:

- Exocet Formula Warp 100
- Sailworks NX slm 7.2
- 62 cm prototype fin from F4 Fins

The distance may be advertised as 17-miles but in reality it's closer to 30-miles as Marion zig-zags downwind making 74 jibes along the way. For more entertaining commentary on the journey, check out Andreas Macke's G-42 blog
