D25 2004

Santa's Sailing Sled

D25’s debut design was inspired by the idea of Santa’s sailing sled being borrowed by a mischievous elf. Santa’s sled has all the features you’d expect: candy cane mast & boom & tiller, red running rails, large red velvet bag of toys & lifejackets for emergencies, a flashing red beacon at the masthead to light the way, and a mainsail of colorful lights. Santa’s sled is part of the one design class ‘D25’ which stands for December 25th. The design was built at low tide by beaching D25 and stringing lights on the mast & gaff rigged sail from the pier and a ladder as needed. This design only used one Honda Eu2000i generator and was maxed out at 2KW 120VAC of power. Many of the signature items were debuted in 2004 including: the masthead strobe, an AOOGHA horn, D25 , my parade entry number 25.
