The Lady Jane is a 1960 built wooden Lightning one design. Returned to the water after 30 years in a barn and a two year refit, she has been modified for dinghy cruising with an eye towards the R2AK. She has had a cabin added and her sail plan has been revised and modernized.
Rob Hodge took part in the 2016 and 2017 R2AK first leg, finishing in 2016 and capsizing in 2017. He sails out of Shilshole in Seattle, usually in the company of a four-foot sock monkey named George.
