I love hearing that Il Mostro will be sailing the Mac this year! Following the VOR so closely last time around it was absolutely a fast boat and the Ericsson team got lucky throwing money at their program and ending up with such a great crew! I can't wait to see what this boat can do on the Great Lakes. I know we won't be hearing nearly as much complaining about how the lakes don't provide real offshore racing after last years tragic events. I also know it may not be the southern ocean, with icebergs and the such, like the boat is used to. That leads to the boat going all that much faster and will make it truly exciting to see! I would love to hear more about the plan for the boat and who the crew will be! I'm always interested in crewing something of that caliber even if it's just for the Round the Island after the Mac is all done. Get us some more info and keep us up to date! I hope you keep up the great coverage of the Mac like last year! See you on the island!
