Greg and Jacques interview at 2 minutes. Pretty sure Jacques said that he and Greg were sharing one pair of tighty-whiteys...not sure though. If it's true, that's an awesome skipper/crew relationship. That must be the the secret of how to get really fast. Kind of like the anecdote of walking a mile in another man's shoes... :D

Yeah - the way that video clip got edited it sounds funny as hell - I was talking about the 'sailing conditions' being like home, not that Greg only has one pair of undies... Good times - we have been a little up & down, but are solid in the top 20 and looking to do better now that they are splitting the fleet into gold and silver. I'll try and post up reports - but internet is time for me is limited with where we are staying.

Hobie Wild Cat continues its winning ways...

1st at F18 Worlds.

FRA 36
BACKES Olivier
JARLEGAN Arnaud

Greg and Jacques had a few bad days. They did MUCH better today with at least a 5th and a 6th finish, too late for a top spot, but will bring them in the top 30 likely.
