On Friday we had very puffy conditions at around 15-20 in the East River. We got off four races and were in Sixth at the end of the day, only seven points spreading us from the leaders, Kings Point.

    Saturday brought high winds and freezing conditions. With …

If all the survivors could thank you personally they would. To them it is because of us that …
