About Ohana...

Ohana is the Hawaiian word for family. In 2020, Tor and Laurie Hough purchased Ohana (Ex-Equation). While Tor has sailed for decades on boats owned by others, 2020 was the family’s first foray into ownership. After a bit of scrambling in the early summer, Ohana’s crew shook out to be a mix of the Equation sailors alongside the Hough family and a handful of Tor’s former shipmates.

Given the pandemic, the 2020 season was different. The opportunities to compete and socialize were fewer and intentionally smaller. Still, Ohana managed to establish a core crew and capture a third in class and third overall in the Bayview Mackinac Race. In 2022, Ohana seeks to extend its family and enjoy its company while competing in the CYC Race to Mackinac, the Bayview Mackinac Race, the Ugotta Regatta, and other Detroit-area regattas.
