Hi John. One of the two happiest days of your life. I hope that when we next meet, we'll have time for a chat and a drink and talk about the way things should be. Thanks for your vision, your encouragement and sharing some of your wisdom. Tony Dec-14-18 01:17:15

It is exciting to be in the top 10 at a national event. Lucky 7 of us registered so far. I think our record for this event is 40. Chris buys a beer for everyone who registers before 12/31/18. That should get our numbers way up! I look forward to... Dec-12-18 08:57:17

Talk abut a great event. We had 17 Force 5s on the starting line this weekend. Two days of perfect wind and the usual shifts to keep it interesting. Some of the closest racing of the year. Also, as usual the best party of the year! Sep-24-18 13:05:56

Man that looked cool right up to the point where the drone pilot lost track of those still racing, or flying away from the windward mark right when everyone was getting there. But, it shows such potential! I'm loving the fact that drones... Aug-15-18 17:00:37

What Rob is looking at is just long enough to fit the Force 5 and with it being aluminum he will still only be a single axle and be able to tow it with his current vehicle. Jul-09-18 09:20:24

Brian, The Championship is for sailors who have placed in the top 5 in a major regatta. If you haven't you fall into the Challenger. This doesn't keep you from winning a top 5, it just means you will be eligible for the Challenger... May-08-18 04:20:49
