Congrats Liberty. Clean sweep on Sunday! Careful, they'll hit your rating.
Thanks amigo! Had a really great team on the boat. One of those regattas that everything totally jived. We were hitting on all cylinders!
On a side note... we hit a speed record on Sun. Gust was 30... the knot meter (not calibrated) read 17.4. I am pretty sure that we were over 20 knots. At least the first half of the boat was out of the water... we were hauling a**!!!
A tribute to a great crew... not the first wipe out in gusty and shifty conditions. My T, Doug Thome was on his game as well as I have ever seen. Maiden did not give us the last race... made us work for it. The last leg we got into a tacking duel... blowing 20-25... we tacked I think in excess of 15 times in that leg. The trimmers were SPENT... but they did one heck of a job! As always... DJ kept us out of a bunch of trouble on the bow.
And by the way... the ACC's are in Atlanta... GO HEELS!!! :-)
