Meet Kass Schmitt! She is about to take off (IN 2 WEEKS!) on the OSTAR (The Original Transatlantic Singlehanded Race) with the goal of becoming the first woman to win! I have not met Kass in person yet, but we have corresponded and connected on social media. She has graciously agreed to be a part of my documentary project about women solo offshore sailors, and I cannot wait to meet her in person for our interview! Our correspondence alone has shown me what a true badass she is! Kass is the perfect blend of graciousness, kindness and pure grit! I have no doubt that her race will be a success. She is still looking for support for her campaign, and I want to share the link here to her Indiegogo page so that perhaps some of you can reach out and make a donation! Every little bit will help her achieve her goal! At the very least, please follow here progress on Facebook, and/or her wonderful blog!
Here’s to you Kass!!!!!!
