About Ben Jammin... BenJAMMIN is named after my grandson Benjamin who was born the same year the boat was purchased. Ben is 22 now but BenJAMMIN is actually 39. The crew ranges in age from 20 to 75. We spontaneously read a page out of Moby Dick during the race. The page is chosen by boat speed. Melville's words are often strangely appropriate. Looking forward to a great adventure.
