Better sailing today - more wind! And we raced outside off Seal Beach instead of behind the break-water.

We had a first in race three and a couple of top fives (and a shocker - so dropping that one - I hope!)- still sitting good in 4th overall - we are still learning how to sail the new boat - its totally different than the Tiger - so we'll see how we progress, not bad considering its our 5th day on the boat!

Great Pictures Jeremy!

Ask the Canadian Wildcat Team - Oliver Pilon and Maxime Loiselle
Where is their big white Maple Leaf on that Red Sail???
That would be cool...

Glad to see colored sails on Hobies

Cool sequence - J Bone, we had a nice little match race there with Gunnar... Today we had another good day - and Coen suffered a bit - so we are all three within 6 points I think. Tomorrow we try to win it all - Euro Trash go home!! haha

Those are the 'snapshots' I was telling you about. My photo quality was suffering by that time in the day.
