Genuine Risk to Honor "Rudi"

The 90 ft Genuine Risk owned by Randall Pittman will sail the Chicago Mac race in honor of Mark Rudiger "Rudi" who passed away on Thursday. Genuine Risk will dawn the nickname "Rudi" on the boom of her boat as she crosses the starting line of the 100th running of the Chicago Mac Race. Mr. Pittman asked for the lettering to be placed on the boom to pay tribute to a good friend and crew memeber. "This is how we want to remember him" Pittman said. "Rudi loved to race and this race is for him!"
