Welcome, Challenge Accepted! This will be Michael Cummings first race and his team will be completing the race in honor of his friend, RT, who passed away early in his life to lung cancer - having never smoked. Their Jeanneau 53 spinnaker is emblazoned with the Ironman logo (of which Michael also completed in honor of RT) with the white ribbon for lung cancer intertwined. ⠀
