    Colleges dropping sailing as a varsity sport..

    Most Athletic Directors come out of the Football/Basketball system and have little or no interest in what they call non-revenue sports. Keeping in mind that the so called revenue sports don't make enough money to cover their expenses but only generate cash flow. These same Directors have the mind set that any alumni donation is derived through the Football/Basketball program even if they are told it was from another sport. The NCAA is the only reason (plus Title 9) that the Olympic sports still exist on campuses. College Football and Basketball make up the Farm/Club system for those sports and the professional leagues should be supporting the College programs.

    Fireballs

    I always wonder what would have happened if the Fireball was chosen instead of the 470 for the Olympics. I still remember the windy mid-winters when both sailed out of Davis Island prior to the selection.

    Nice Bass from the pond yesterday.
  12. I attended the original production in London during a visit prior the the Fireball Worlds 1998? Spent a great couple of weeks traveling around England on a Brit Rail pass and seeing the sights in London. A couple that I helped with delivering and managing their boat offered their London apartment as a home base. Different times then.

    Hate to add to the drift. My brother got one of those motors crated from GM as a graduation present from my father. He put it in a 56 chevy. Kinda reminds me of the movie with James Taylor in it. Two Lane Blacktop?

    Dinghy In The Pool?

    I thought this was about the Fireball in the Davis Island pool Mid-Winters trick. I also seem to remember a certain sail makers lightning with trailer in a pool in Sanford. Long time gone.
