    Keep Your Pros on the Dock

    I have had a blast sailing in Sarnia at the last two Shark regattas you guys have run. It is always fun racing against the Boston's, they are a real asset to the class doing new sail development. Hope Brad is there again this year with his guys, we pushed them to the last race last year.
