If you need a racing fix, I would like to mention an event that is starting this coming Monday August 8th and going through Friday. There are 37 competitors listed. There will be a mix of Hobie Tigers and Nacra F18s. This is the Formula 18 North Americans: http://northamericans.naf18.com/
There will also be live video feeds and stories as the event goes on at: http://f18naonline.com/
Take a look at the entry list to see if there is anyone you know going.
Eileen and I are flying out, from California, Friday night.
