It's not ALL about the racing...

We said that 4 boats were packed off for Garda.  Four US teams, there are more attending. From the US we have:

  • USA 36 - Lin Robson with Richard Phillips (GBR), the team that just won US Nationals
  • NZL 145 - Paul Scoffin and Pavel Ruzicka, both veterans of many Worlds and a team that placed 4th in NZL
  • GBR 367 - Jonathan and Nigel Gorbold, a father and son team from Canandaigua.  Nigel has gotten big since the 99 Worlds and his days driving USA 1426
  • USA 251 - Tim Sayles and Serge Leonidov, Serge is a former Star Olympics campaigner who will clearly add polish to tactics
  • Also, Paul Hemker will be teaming up with Peter Doran in GBR 382.  Paul on the wire! Yea!

Everyone has their posses and we'll introduce them all later.  Good luck to everyone!{jcomments on}
