My apologies for not Emailing you before now about the great time our group had on USA 76 back on August 16! Absolutely perfect weather certainly helped (NO FOG at 10AM, a fresh-but-not-overwhelming breeze, nice temperature), but it really was the CAPTAIN and CREW that made this experience very special.
I’m finishing up the September issue of our IYC Mainsheet newsletter, and USA76 is prominently featured. Give me about an hour (4PM or so) and you’ll find it available at http://iyc.org/mainsheet.html .
Those folks took the word back to their homes in LA, Texas and Chicago, and have also spread the word and photos around the international sailing community in Second Life. I sincerely hope some of those sailors will make the trip here and try it for themselves.
Thanks again!– Dave Bloch Commodore, Island YC
