           Sailor Spotlight on Jim Blakewell

Jim Blakewell sails out of Oklahoma City Boat Club on Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City, OK.

Jim and his trusty crew Willard Rogers and Marvin Mason have made a strong resurgence in appearances at Santana 20 events in the last few years making appearances in San Diego, Cascade Locks and several mid west Santana 20 events.  "Supernatural" is most recognizable as the boat with the Jack-O-Lantern spinnaker. Jim is the Original owner if this boat!  He purchased it new in 1980.  Jim sails more than just a S20, he also has a Hobie 33 named Barbarella that has a lot of miles on its trailer participating in events in the Gulf of Mexico and up and down the Pacific coast.  Jim is always friendly and in a great mood making him a great competitor on the water and a great friend at the dock.
