Happy Easter

Recommended Posts

It is a gorgeous Spring day here in Valencia, especially nice in contrast to the past few days weeks of cold and, at times, heavy rain. The team has a well-deserved four days off as tomorrow, too, is a bank holiday in Spain and much of Europe.

 

In Spain, Easter is a bit like Thanksgiving in the USA -- a day that family and friends like to gather for a long, relaxed afternoon meal or BBQ.

 

Hard to believe it is our fifth (!) Easter here. For our extended Cup family (including local non-sailing friends) the tradition by now is to gather at the modest Club de Campos (literally, "country club") in the urbanization (suburb) north of town where a number of us live. We shall do so again this afternoon.

 

Our sailing team will be back hard at it with the X40s on Tuesday, and the next RC44 regatta is the following week in Cagliari, Sardinia. The BMW Sailing Cup World Final is that same week, at Lake Garda. And our colleagues in Anacortes, Minden and San Diego continue to have plenty on their plates as well.

 

Thanks for your many (mostly) kind PMs and emails since last Tuesday's decision. Key now is put the past behind us, and get on with a proper mutual consent, multi-challenger Cup ASAP, if at all possible. If that is not to be, then to make the best of the next ten months for all concerned, including and especially Cup fans.

 

To those who celebrate it, best wishes to you and your families for a very Happy Easter. May the spirit of the season prevail in a rejuvenated America's Cup 33.

Good Morning Tom, once again it is good to hear from you and our best wishes go to you and the team.

 

Keep-up the good work and our hopes will remain that all things can be worked-out so the Cup can get back on track again.

Happy Easter Everyone! My favorite holiday, Jesus comes back as a bunny rabbit and lays eggs and gives out candy. And if Jesus sees his shadow today, we have 6 more weeks of winter.

I heard Valencia's weather has been though.... Really sorry to hear that from our sunny and warm San Diego....

 

If I remember correctly there was a great Easter Egg hunt at Andy's Pig farm....

 

Happy Easter for all the expatriates in Valencia.

Couldn't agree more, and hopefuly with some genuinely insightful commentary from people lke yourself actually making it happen.

 

Best of luck to you, your family and your team, and happy Easter.

One day late, but better late than never. Happy Easter to all, especially the folk in BMWO that have been working their butts off for sometime now. Enjoy the break.
